BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER
Blog Symposia are collections of blog posts organised on a particular theme, topic or question. As well as providing a way of allowing more sustained and multifaceted discussion of a selected subject, they also allow the Blog to bring together authors who are working on similar questions. In some cases, authors may already know one another. In others, the Editors gather authors together. We will also consider Blog Symposia arising from conferences, workshops, seminars and other meetings.
HOW MANY BLOG POSTS MAKE A SYMPOSIUM?
A Blog Symposium will ordinarily contain 4-6 Blog posts, but may be slightly longer.
PROPOSE A BLOG SYMPOSIUM
We welcome proposals for Blog Symposia, which may be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals for Blog Symposia should include the following information:
Proposers: The names, contact details and affiliations of the proposer(s), and hyperlinks to their profiles.
Title: The title (or working title) of the Symposium. This should ideally be short and clear.
Theme: 2-3 paragraphs describing the theme, topic or question to be addressed by the Symposium, and why it is topical, important or relevant to the IACL Blog readership.
Proposed authors: A list of proposed authors, their affiliations, and working title of their contribution (or description of their contribution). It is helpful if authors have already agreed to contribute to the proposed Symposium, before submitting a Symposium proposal to the Blog. However, this is not strictly necessary, especially regarding proposals for Symposia on very recent constitutional developments.
