The symposium organisers now invite interested academics, graduate students and other scholars or practitioners to submit abstracts to meet our symposium brief: intrastate conflict, its legacies and processes of reconciliation, be they cultural, memorial, literary, artistic, historical, military, political, sociological, creative and/or intellectual.

We are particularly interested in original and multi-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary reflections that explore how warring parties have been able to come to a place of reconciliation.  

You will find more background on the symposium including potential topics for papers on the About page.

The Call for Papers is now closed.

Abstract Evaluation

All abstracts will be peer reviewed, with the identity of the author(s) not being disclosed to the reviewers. Criteria for acceptance include relevance to the symposium theme and originality of content. 

Accepted abstracts, along with presenter profiles, will be printed in the symposium handbook. The Symposium Organising Committee reserves the right to ask presenters to make changes to abstracts and profiles to meet language or other requirements. 

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their submission by 1 November 2022
