GSA 2016 Call for Papers

GSA 2016 Global (In)Securities

Centre for Global Justice

St Mary’s University College Belfast

29 June 2016 – 1 July 2016

‘Global (In-)Securities’ provides a platform to explore and discuss questions relating to the practices, technologies and experiences of securities and insecurities in a globalised world. In recognition of the complexities that pertain to the question of security and insecurity, relating to issues such as war and conflict, migration and the global economy, we want to probe multi- and interdisciplinary perspectives on global (in-)securities. While cognisant of the contribution from the field of security studies, we welcome paper and panel proposals from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and methodological perspectives.

Submissions that engage with the conference theme and address the following topics are particularly encouraged, although we invite proposals for panels and papers from all areas of Global Studies:

  • Theorising (in-)security
  • Representations of (in-)security in film and literature
  • Spatial and temporal dimensions of (in-)security
  • Technologies of (in-)security
  • (In-)security and transnational migration
  • Gender and (in-)security
  • Affective and embodied experiences of (in-)security
  • Precarity, vulnerability and (in-)security
  • (In-)security in the global economy
  • (In-)security and human rights
  • (In-)security and the anthropocene
  • Ethics, cosmopolitanism and (in-)security

Please submit your paper or panel proposal to The deadline for the submission of paper and panel proposals is 1 March 2016. Paper proposals should include a title, abstract (300 words) and institutional affiliation; panel proposals should include a panel title and description as well as the abstracts and details of panel speakers.
