WHEN / WHERE
Papers on all topics related to the Right as a social, political, or intellectual phenomenon from the 19th century to the present day are welcome, and in addition there will be a special conference track focused on the burgeoning area of research on male supremacism.
Participants will have the rare opportunity to join an expanding network of scholars who conduct research on the right-wing and on male supremacism, facilitating the development of this interdisciplinary field and future collaborations that emerge from these connections.
In 2019, we welcomed over 80 presenters from North America, South America, and Europe to Berkeley for the Inaugural Conference on Right-Wing Studies. (To view the schedule of papers from the prior conference,click here.) We invite proposals for panels and paper presentations from faculty, graduate students, independent scholars, and others whose work addresses the study of the Right.
Individual paper proposals should consist of a title and 500-word abstract. Panel proposals should include a title and a 500-word panel abstract, as well as titles and brief abstracts for all papers; discussants and chairs are welcome, but not mandatory. Paper and panel proposals should be submitted here. Both are due by February 3, 2020.
The Berkeley Center for Right-Wing Studies is an interdisciplinary academic center uniting scholars from different fields, departments, and methodologies based at the University of California, Berkeley. The Institute for Research on Male Supremacism is a new organization that brings together experts from both inside and outside of academia to analyze and expose the dangers of misogynist ideology and mobilization.
