Note who completed forms are to be mailed to. / In solidarity, Jerry ----- Original Message ----- Union for Radical Political Economics Call for Papers - Annual ASSA Meeting New Orleans January 4-6, 2008 URPE invites proposals for individual papers and complete sessions for the URPE at ASSA (Allied Social Sciences Association) annual meeting. URPE welcomes proposals on radical political economic theory and applied analysis from a wide variety of theoretical traditions. The *deadline* for proposed papers and sessions is *May 1, 2007*. Proposals for *complete sessions* are encouraged and should include the session title, a brief description of each paper, and the names, institutional affiliations, and email addresses of the chair, discussants, and presenters. Proposals for sessions should contain four papers. If you are proposing a complete session, please arrange to have discussants for your papers and a chair for your session. As the organizer of this session, you are responsible for conveying administrative information to session members, including confirmation that the session has been accepted, the time and location, and deadlines. Proposals for *individual papers* should include the title, the abstract, and the author's name, institutional affiliation, and email. Individuals whose papers are accepted may also be expected to serve as a discussant for a different paper at the meetings. If you list the areas you prefer to discuss, all attempts will be made to match your preferences. Individual papers that are accepted will be assigned to sessions and each session will have an assigned organizer. It is the organizer's job to convey administrative information to session members, including confirmation that the session has been accepted, the time and location, and deadlines. URPE has no paid ASSA staff, so those presenting papers must share the burden of organizing. We regret that high quality individual papers may be turned down due to the inability to place them in a session with papers with similar themes. For this reason, we strongly encourage proposals for full sessions. The number of sessions we can accept is limited by ASSA, and we regret that high quality sessions may be turned down as well. Please note that the date, time, and location of sessions is assigned by ASSA, not URPE. You should receive word from URPE that your paper/session was accepted by mid-June. ASSA will not assign dates and times until much later in the summer. Please note that anyone who presents a paper (but not the chairs or discussants) must be a member of URPE (except at joint sessions with other groups, in which case they can be a member of the other organization). Contact email@example.com or 413-577-0806 for membership information. We will confirm membership for accepted proposals. A completed copy of the Program Registration Form (below) is required with your submission. *Submissions will NOT BE ACCEPTED BY EMAIL. Only applications received by the May 1 deadline will be considered*.
