Call for Papers

The Call for Papers is now open for the V CHAM International Conference on the main theme Frontiers of Humanity and Beyond: Towards new critical understandings of borders.

Papers should be designed to be included in the Themes of the Conference and/or in one of the following Panels. Information about Panels’ organisers and abstracts can be accessed by clicking on each Panel title.

The participation at the V CHAM Conference implies a mandatory registration and the payment of Conference fees. Since this will be a hybrid event – presential and virtual – different registration fees will be applied for CHAM’s members, non-members and students.
