Call for Papers
2nd Meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Leadership Conference
Newport News, VA – March 24, 2012
The Department of Leadership and American Studies at Christopher Newport University (CNU) and the Undergraduate Leadership Review (CNU’s peer-reviewed leadership studies journal) are pleased to announce their call for papers for the 2nd Meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Leadership Conference, which will meet at CNU in Newport News, Virginia, on 24 March 2012.
The conference theme is “Leadership in a Changing Society,” highlighting the opportunities and challenges that individuals face as they practice leadership in the modern world. We encourage a diverse group of participants and especially encourage students and junior scholars to present their work and to serve on panels. The program committee is particularly interested in receiving proposals that deal with the following leadership topics: leading change, ethics in leadership, bad leadership, multicultural leadership, public/political leadership, new perspectives on historical leaders, leadership issues in K-12 and higher education, and service learning. However, the program committee will consider all panel and paper proposals dealing with important questions of leadership studies.
Panel proposals must include a panel title, contact information for all panelists, a brief description of the purpose and theme of the panel, a one-paragraph abstract of each of the papers, a one-page curriculum vita of each panelist, including commentator and chair, and contact information. Proposals for individual papers are welcome and should include a brief abstract, a one-page curriculum vita, and contact information. Proposals must be submitted electronically to the conference coordinator, Prof. Sean Heuvel (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for proposals is 15 January 2012.
The meeting will be held on the CNU campus in Newport News, Virginia. It is easily accessible by Interstate 64 and from Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport.
