Call for Papers for a Session on Lived Experiences of Illness for Families and Caretakers at the Society for the Study of Social Problems 64th Annual Meeting
Bell, Douglas A. [ firstname.lastname@example.org ]
August 15-17, 2014 San Francisco, California
Each participant is permitted to submit one sole-authored paper and one critical dialogue paper, but additional co-authored papers may be submitted. Critical Dialogue sessions include short (5 minute) presentations by up to 8 authors followed by facilitated dialogue that critically explores connections among the papers. The audience will have an opportunity to participate in the dialogue as well. Emphasis is placed on exploring interesting connections between papers with a broadly similar theme. The hope is that both presenters and the audience will have an opportunity to make new and deeper connections from their unique insights and presented ideas. Critical Dialogue sessions will not have audio-visual equipment.
All papers must be submitted by midnight (EST) on January 31, 2014 in order to be considered.
