Current Call For Papers

Below is information for the April 11-12, 2015 conference. Information on the 2016 conference (in April at Ball State University) will be posted as it becomes available.

Spring 2015 Conference

Date: April 11-12, 2015

Location: Ohio Northern University
, Ada, Ohio

Conference Keynote Speaker: Liz Wilson, Miami University of Ohio

The deadline for proposal submissions was January 11, 2015. 

For future reference, proposals for Midwest AAR conferences are usually due in early January, using the following guidelines:

Authors may submit a 250 to 450 word proposal for individual papers or for panels of papers. The online submission system will prompt you to designate a particular "Section" for your proposal. (descriptions of each section are listed on the Section Chairs web page). If you have any questions about whether your proposal is appropriate for a particular section, please contact that section’s chair. If you feel your proposal does not fit into any of our current sections, you may submit it to the Special Topics section. While at least one Special Topics session may be related to the themes addressed by the conference speaker, proposals to Special Topics (or any other section) need not be tailored to fit the themes addressed in the plenary session. 

Creative, unconventional, interactive session formats are encouraged. You may also opt to submit a proposal for a poster if that better suits your project; just indicate this in your proposal itself.

Please observe these restrictions:

1. You may submit up to two different proposals to a single section.
2. You may submit up to two different proposals to two different sections.
3. You may not submit the same proposal to two different sections.

Notification of acceptance/rejection will be sent out at the beginning of February.
