CFP, Western Social Science Association

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to invite you to submit an abstract of a paper, panel, or roundtable for presentation in the Globalization and Development section of the Western Social Science Association 56th Annual Conference April 2-5, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Albuquerque Hyatt.

The Section on Globalization and Development encourages research and papers on policies, problems, social movements, cultural representations, disasters, communities, and livelihoods. I hope you can join us in 2014 to present your latest work.

The WSSA conference provides an affordable opportunity to present at a peer-reviewed national conference. In addition to scholars, graduate students and junior faculty are particularly welcome because of their fresh perspectives. Mentors of junior faculty and graduate students are encouraged to offer joint papers. In addition, self advocates, community advocates, providers, and government agency personnel are especially welcome to submit proposals.

Attached to this email, you will find an Abstract Form Call for Papers.doc and other conference related material (WSSACallforpapers.pdf). To look at past or future conferences or explore more about WSSA, please visit

Your abstract must be received either via e-mail or post-marked regular mail by December 8, 2013. Please include the following information: Title of Presentation, First author’s name, affiliation, mailing Address, telephone number and email address; Other author’s names, affiliations, and emails, and an abstract that does not exceed 200 words.
