SASE 2019 Mini-Conference Themes Call for Proposals

Fathomless Futures: Algorithmic and Imagined

Mini-Conference Theme Proposal Deadline: 1 October 2018

As they have in the past years, thematic mini-conferences will form a key element of next year’s annual conference in New York City, hosted by The New School from 27-29 June 2019. Proposals are now welcome for mini-conference themes. Several mini-conference themes will be selected for inclusion in the Call for Papers by the program committee, which may also propose themes of its own.  Preference will be given to proposals linked to the overarching conference theme, “Fathomless Futures: Algorithmic and Imagined,” but mini-conferences on other SASE-related themes will also be considered. 

Proposals for mini-conference themes must be submitted electronically to the SASE Executive Director by 1 October 2018. All mini-conference proposals should include the name(s) and email addresses of the organizer(s), together with a brief description. As in previous years, each mini-conference will consist of 3 to 6 panels, which will be featured as a separate stream in the program. Each panel will have a discussant, meaning that selected participants must submit a completed paper in advance, by 27 May 2019. Submissions for panels will be open to all scholars on the basis of an extended abstract. If a paper proposal cannot be accommodated within a mini-conference, organizers will forward it to the most appropriate research network as a regular submission.

SASE is committed to diverse membership and lively intellectual debates and encourages proposals that are offered by a diverse group of organizers and/or is likely to bring a diverse group of participants.

Proposals should be submitted to: Martha Zuber (
