Emerging Scholars Conference Participant

The Notre Dame International Security Center (NDISC) seeks nominations of outstanding candidates (advanced ABD students or pre/post doctoral fellows) to present their work at the fifth annual Emerging Scholars in Grand Strategy Conference. The three-day conference will consist of 6 workshops, one for each successful nominee. Each workshop will include a research presentation by the Emerging Scholar, a response by a senior scholar in the field, and a general discussion. NDISC will make all arrangements and cover all expenses related to the conference, which will be held May 20-22 at the Oakwood Resort in Syracuse, IN.

 

By grand strategy, we mean some aspect of where, when, and how states (as well as armed groups) consider using military force among other instruments of statecraft to achieve foreign policy goals, broadly defined. We seek nominees whose work applies the very best scholarship to the most pressing issues facing the United States in the 21st Century and does so in a way that broadens the intellectual and practical discussion of these issues in innovative ways. In addition to having first-rate scholarly credentials, the ideal nominee will also have an interest in applying their scholarly work to some aspect of the formulation and implementation of foreign policy goals.

 

Nominee(s) should upload a CV, a brief bio, and a 250-word abstract that describes their project to (Interfolio link. The automated system will subsequently ask nominators for a letter of recommendation; letters that have already been written for other purposes (e.g. fellowships, academic jobs) are sufficient.

 

The deadline for receipt of all materials is January 24, 2020.
