ISHR 2019 Conference - Call for Papers -- Deadline Extended

Because of numerous requests, the deadline for submitting abstracts to the 2019 New Orleans ISHR conference has been extended until Friday, 1 June

Dear ISHR members, 

       Because of numerous requests, the deadline for submitting abstracts to the 2019 New Orleans ISHR conference has been extended until Friday, 1 June. Please pass this information to colleagues who are not members of ISHR (and thus not on our mailing list) but who were considering submitting papers. Directions for submission are below. The on-line submission system has been working well thanks to Manfred Kraus and his technology team in Tübingen. 

Best wishes, 

Malcolm


I am pleased to announce that the Call for Papers for the 2019 conference for the International Society for the History of Rhetoric has been posted on the ISHR conference website:  
http://www.ishr-conference.org/ as well as on the main ISHR website:  
http://ishr-web.org/aws/ISHR/pt/sp/conference, including links to the CFP in the other official conference languages as well as to the proposal submission page. The deadline for submission is 11 May 2018. 

Please CLICK HERE to access the submission website directly.

The 2019 conference theme is “populism,” certainly a timely topic intimately connected to rhetoric from ancient times until today. The conference will be held in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Hotel Monteleone, possibly New Orleans’ most celebrated hotel. New Orleans is a major tourist destination and is serviced by most major airlines. In summer there are now non-stop flights from London and others will possibly be available by 2019. More travel and lodging information will be on the ISHR site as we get closer to the conference. 

To be sure your submission is registered completely by our conference software, please be careful about a few steps. First, make sure to wait a short time after hitting the “submit” button. You should receive a confirmation quickly, both as a confirmation window which pops up on your screen and as a confirmation e-mail. Problems in submission can also be caused by proposals which are longer than the maximum 300 words and by required fields on the submission form which are not filled out. If you still have problems, please contact me (enmric@lsu.edu ) , Bé Breij (Chair of the Program Committee, b.breij@let.ru.nl )  or Kathie Cesa, (ISHR Member Services,ishr@kocmemberservices.com). Special thanks to Past President Manfred Kraus and his technicians in Germany who have maintained and upgraded the submission software. 

Look forward to seeing you in New Orleans in 2019, and have a restful and festive holiday season this year! 

Best wishes, 

Malcolm
