interdisciplinary networks

Interdisciplinary Networks are platforms tasked with focusing sustained interdisciplinary attention on topics of interest to the GSA membership by distributing calls for papers and forming panel series for the annual conference on a regular basis. Networks also have maintained list-servs, blog sites, and webpages, and have developed publications (journal issues and book volumes) derived from their panel activities.

GSA Networks are formed in consultation with the GSA’s standing Interdisciplinary Network Committee, comprising all Network Coordinators and its Co-chairs. Network Coordinators are nominated by the Interdisciplinary Network Committee Co-chairs and confirmed by the GSA President and Executive Director for three-year terms. Please consult the GSA Interdisciplinary Networks Suggested Best Practices document for more information.
