Call for Papers, Panels, and Abstracts
NCA/AFA Conference on Argumentation
The Rustler Lodge, Alta, UT
July 30-August 2, 2009
Theme: The Functions of Argument and Social Context
Submissions for the Program: Please send electronic versions of completed papers, panel proposals, or extended abstracts to the Conference Program Planner, Dennis S. Gouran (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, April 3, 2009.
Submission Format: Drafts of completed papers from any of the traditional perspectives on argumentation or from emerging contemporary views in the social sciences and humanities are welcome. Papers may reflect pedagogical, philosophical, theoretical, interpretive, empirical, critical, or cross disciplinary perspectives.
Panel proposals should provide a title, names and addresses (including email) of participants, and an abstract for each paper. If respondents are included, their role should be explained. We discourage panel proposals in which all participants are from the same institution.
Extended abstracts (at least 500 words) should be substantial enough to indicate the scope, direction, and merit of proposed papers. Assessments will be based on the evaluators' understandings of the projected document discussed in the abstract.
If possible, submissions should reflect the Conference theme.
Multiple submissions are permissible, but not encouraged.
