The North American Anarchist Studies Network (NAASN) is currently seeking presentations for our tenth conference to be held from May 31st to June 2nd (2019) in “Atlanta, Georgia (USA).”
This year’s conference theme, “Emergent Horizons,” invites papers that critically examine, expound, and encourage projects of world building and social transformation. Horizons are both the limit of perception and the referential lines that orient movement and geography. In the same manner, projects of social and political change have aspirational goals of building new worlds and new realities. In following this theme, this year’s conference invites us to think through and beyond the limits of what we as scholars, activists, and militants perceive of and comprehend as revolutionary struggle in the past, present, and future. How is resistance and resilience taking shape? What are the contours of the world we live in? How can we expand our perceptions and practices to shape our present and imagine our futures? In short, what is on the horizon?
That being said, in keeping with the open and fluid spirit of anarchism, we do not limit the call for specific topics of discussion, but rather encourage presentations on broad and diverse historical, contemporary, and utopian matters.
Conference proposal submissions, or questions, should be addressed to the NAASN 2019 organizing committee: [email protected] Please include in your submission:
• Title and Summary of your proposal (no more than 300 words)

If you anticipate you will be unable to attend in person, please indicate this in your submission; if your proposal is accepted we may invite you to submit a pre-recorded presentation that can be aired at the conference.
