The President of the PWSA invites submissions for the association’s WrestlePosium II.
WrestlePosium I was such a resounding success that we are going to follow the same format for next year!
This virtual symposium will happen online on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021, a week after WrestleMania 37.
Hopefully WrestleMania and all the festivities in professional wrestling associated with it will go on next year as they could not this year. With this hope, we are having the symposium after the festivities so that people who are interested can more easily attend to all the events. For more on the WrestlePosium series, see https://www.prowrestlingstudies.org/home-2/wrestleposium-the-online-symposium/
The PWSA seeks to bring academic scholarship to the festivities by connecting wrestling scholars around the world to present their research and ideas.
Presentations can be given live, via a videoconferencing tool, as a virtual symposium. Additionally, all live presentations will also be recorded and collected for later viewing.
Presentations and videos will be no longer than 15 minutes, but applicants can also submit ideas for roundtable discussions and complete panels. Sessions will be scheduled during the day based on the proposals.
Interested applicants should submit a 500-word proposal outlining the purpose and scope of their presentation, roundtable or panel. Proposals should include titles and contact information for all speakers. Submissions should be sent to PWSA president CarrieLynn D. Reinhard (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The deadline for submissions to the symposium is December 31, 2020.
