Call for Sessions

Call for plenaries 


Plenaries are meant to address the whole conference. We seek proposals for three plenaries of 90 minutes each, which can take the form of standard panels or roundtables (see below for information on session formats). 

  • Plenary 1: overarching “big” issues, to be defined by proposers

  • Plenary 2: the concerns of hunter-gatherers. Ideally, Plenary 2 should be led by hunter-gatherers

  • Closing Plenary: to identify the achievements and gaps of the conference followed by free-form discussion. We would like the closing plenary to be dominated by younger scholars with past experience of CHAGS.

Proposers for all plenaries should identify speakers and their areas of concern. To enhance your chances of acceptance, most plenary speakers should be (nearly) confirmed by 7 September. Plenaries not accepted as such may be scheduled as regular panels.
