Event Program & Conference App Information

ISHR 2024 Timetable (February version)

ISHR 2024 Panels (February version)

The plenary speakers will be: Ruth Amossy (emerita, Tel Aviv University), Claude La Charité (Université du Québec à Rimouski), Lahcen El Yazghi Ezzaher (University of Northern Colorado), Hanne Roer (Københavns Universitet), and Xiaoye You (Pennsylvania State University). We look forward to sharing the titles of their talks in a later iteration of the schedule.

As you prepare your paper (or look ahead to reading for and writing it), keep in mind that ISHR presentation units are 30 minutes long: 20 minutes for the paper + 10 for Q&A about only your paper. Panel chairs will make sure every panelist has 30 minutes; it’s up to you to leave time for questions (that is, if you speak for 28 minutes, you will leave 2 minutes for questions.)

Going forward, any questions or requested changes regarding the program documents should go to the program chair, Michele Kennerly (kennerly@psu.edu). For example, if you notice your name is misspelled or your abstract title garbled, please forgive and then email her, and she will fix it for the next version. If it transpires that you need to withdraw your contribution, please email her. Though movement is sure to occur within the program, no one will be moved out of their assigned day.

After making sure the answer is not within the posted conference materials, you may direct any questions regarding anything else conference-related to ISHR President, David Mirhady (dmirhady@sfu.ca), who is planning things from Vancouver. For example, if you require a certificate of acceptance in order to request funding, book a plane ticket, or seek a visa, please email him.

Conference app details coming this summer.
