Call For Papers

Hestia is an international conference for scholars addressing sociopolitical issues from interdisciplinary standpoints. We invite presenters to apply good ideas, whether new or old, to issues facing contemporary society. We are proud to hold our inaugural conference in the historic city of Kyoto. For full details, please visit our website at

HESTIA features three types of presentations:

ANALYTICAL presentations are 20 minutes in length, and consist of a brief introduction to a key concept, or the work of a particular scholar or writer, followed by an explanation of how the concept (etc.) can be used to frame contemporary issues in new and interesting ways. Analytical presentations are particularly accessible to new researchers, or those from outside academia.

RESEARCH presentations are 50 minutes in length rather than the more usual 20 minutes. This allows ample time to showcase the ongoing research activities of one or more participants, and to engage with the audience.

DISCURSIVE presentations feature two or more presenters sharing differing views on a common subject. A mediator guides the interaction and invites participation from audience members. Discursive presentations are a more interactive take on the conventional panel.

Areas the applicant may wish to address include, but are not limited to, the following:

Political correctness in academia; Freedom of expression and censorship in the media/online; Sex and social structures; East/West political and military tensions; Terrorism and security; Liberal democracy and the nature of modern 'civilization'; Migration and culture; Systems of education; Capitalism and development.

Applicants are invited to submit one or more abstracts of no more than 300 words, tailored carefully to meet the requirements of the presentation type. Please also include a bio of no more than 100 words. Submissions should be sent to

Submission deadline: December 31, 2019
