The Carolinas Conflict Consortium is an annual workshop where faculty and graduate students present and receive feedback on research on peace and conflict. It is organized by Chelsea Estancona at the University of South Carolina and James Igoe Walsh at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The consortium met in Charlotte in 2020, virtually in 2021, and in Columbia in 2022.
The fourth annual meeting of the Consortium will be held at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC on the afternoon of April 20, 2023, and the morning of April 21, 2023. Our goal is to provide a friendly and constructive space for faculty and graduate students in the southeastern United States to present and discuss their research.
We encourage paper submissions about any type of conflictual or unconventional political behavior between or within states, broadly construed. In past years, most papers presented at the CCC have employed large-N statistical analysis, experiments, and/or game theoretic approaches. Eight papers will be selected for ~40 minute slots for presentation and discussion/feedback. While papers need not be finished products, they should be sufficiently complete for circulation to a discussant.
If you are interested in participating as a discussant, presenter, or attendee, please complete this form by January 31st, 2023. You will be notified if your paper is selected by mid-February, 2023.
If you have questions, please contact the organizers of the CCC: Chelsea Estancona (firstname.lastname@example.org), Peter Thompson (email@example.com), and James Walsh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
