Thematic Stream Proposals
Building on the efforts at the 2012 and 2013 SASS conferences to provide thematic multi-session threads of discussion, the 2014 conference organizers invited SASS and AABS members to submit proposals for thematic streams – topics that can be expected to attract related proposals spanning several related panel sessions and that would benefit from a gathered summary discussion. The proposed stream topics listed here are those that have been received. We encourage all those planning on presenting a paper at the Yale 2014 conference to consider how their paper could contribute to one of the streams. Participation in a stream is by no means required; if your paper does not fit into one of the streams please submit it anyway! If interest in one or more of the thematic streams listed here turns out to be more limited and specialized, papers submitted for such streams may appear at the conference in the context of one or several panels that are not identified as a conference stream.
