Dear Colleagues,

*Call for Proposals for November Meeting*

The Jain Studies Unit welcomes suggestions for panel ideas to be included
in the AAR 2024 Call for Papers. If you would like to add your idea to the
CFP, or if you have any questions, please send a short provisional title of
your topic to one (or both) of the Jain Studies co-chairs, Gregory Clines (
gclines at trinity.edu) and/or Ana Bajzelj (abajzelj at ucr.edu). We especially
welcome suggestions for panels to be co-sponsored with other units and for
panels that address the 2024 Annual Meeting’s Presidential Theme:
“Violence, Nonviolence, and the Margin.” Finally, the Jain Studies Unit
encourages proposals to include voices that are diverse in terms of race,
caste, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, age, socioeconomic status,
geographic region, professional rank, and institutional affiliation.

Please note that the Jain Studies Unit only accepts proposals for complete
panels, roundtables, book discussions, etc. and does not accept individual
papers. This is true for both the online Summer Session and the in-person
annual meeting.

The following are proposed panel titles with contact information as of Dec.
11, 2023. If interested, please contact the listed person(s) directly.
Additional panel proposals are welcomed. The Jain Studies Unit exclusively
uses the AAR PAPERS system for all submissions.

Sessions Online pilot program. This online-only conference will run from
