Call For Papers

This event will be devoted to presentations of scientific and academic research related to polyamory, open relationships, swinging, other forms of consensual nonmonogamy, and related subjects. Presentations will cover various topics that offer some possible progress to a deeper and more complete understanding of the phenomenon of consensual nonmonogamy. Issues related to both nonmonogamous and monogamous relationships will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective, in as objective and unbiased a manner as possible.

We strive to make this a strongly interdisciplinary conference. Presentations can include research related to psychology, sociology, neuroscience, sociocultural studies, anthropology, political science, historical studies, future projections, media studies, examinations of art, folklore and mythology, or any other area of scholarship related to the subject of consensual nonmonogamy.

Strong preference is given for presentations with obvious direct relevance to issues related to possible future changes in attitudes about monogamy and nonmonogamy.

Preference is for completed projects, but works in progress will also be welcome. Emphasis is on original work not published or previously presented, but exceptions may be made for material deemed especially relevant to the theme of the event. Papers and projects from graduate and undergraduate students will also be welcome.

Papers will be published after the conference in online proceedings with a confirmed ISBN number/reference. There will be no length limit for submissions, but the presentations will be limited to 30 minutes, with ten minutes dedicated to questions, answers, and discussion following each presentation. Proposed presenters are encouraged to send inquires as early as possible.
