Greetings from the PJSA: 

The deadline is approaching for submitting proposals for the 2017 Peace and Justice Studies Association conference being held at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The  proposal deadline is June 30.

Following the closure of the proposal stage, the conference committee will complete the review of proposals and begin scheduling. We plan to release an initial schedule in mid July. We are able to accept proposal past June 30, though these contributions will face greater restrictions in terms of scheduling.  If you would like to propose a presentation but are unable to meet this upcoming deadline, please let us know by reaching out to  info@peacejustiestudies.org .


We are accepting submissions for individual papers/presentations which the committee will organize into panels, individual poster displays, self-organized panels with multiple presenters, facilitated roundtable discussions, single presenter or team-led workshops, films for screening in AUB’s brand new theatre, or contributions which do not fit these categories. If you would like to contribute but are unsure of how to best structure your proposal, feel free to email or call (202-681-2057) our team and we can help guide you.


Thank you to all of those who have already completed the registration, and proposal submisison.  We have already received over 100 proposals for papers, panels, films, workshops, roundtables and other presentations and are excited to see them continue to roll in.

Institutional & Group Rates

Institutional Partners of PJSA or groups of three or more should contact info@peacejusticestudies.org before registering to arrange a group rate. We are able to provide our Institutional Partners and groups a rate of $200 per professional/professor/staff and $50 for each accompanying student.
