Additional Information (2014 Conference)

For those seeking additional information regarding abstract and panel submissions, please see below. The page will be updated with further information in the near future.

1. Panels can have three-four papers. Five may be included, but that entails a shorter time of presentation. 

2. No proper abstract of the entire panel is needed, but a paragraph that introduces the rationale/main idea behind the panel is sufficient. 

3. A complete panel is ideal, with both chair and discussant, though this role is can be performed by the same person as well. 

4. A pre-doc can be a chair but not a discussant.

5. Paper abstracts should be no longer than 400 words.

6. Ideally, the proposed panel would be complete in its submission, however, we are flexible and can also search for a discussant, should it be necessary.

2014 Northedge Essay Prize Update

Professor F.S. Northedge

Professor F.S. Northedge

The 29th Northedge Essay Competition has been extended. Details are available here.

Deadline extended: The deadline for submissions is now Saturday, 15 February 2014.

The prize was established in 1986 to commemorate the invaluable contribution of the late Professor F.S. Northedge to the creation of Millennium. The annual Northedge Essay Competition furthers a Millennium tradition of publishing well-argued student work in a journal open to new issues and innovative approaches to International Relations. The winning essay is generally published in the first issue of each volume.

The Northedge Essay Competition is open to any student who is currently pursuing or has recently completed a degree in International Relations or a related field. The essay may be on any topic within International Relations or related areas of study. The essay must be doubled-spaced and of approximately 7,000 to 10,000 words in length.

The essay may be part of a doctoral research project, an essay or dissertation submitted as part of an undergraduate or Masters’ degree course, a seminar paper, or similar work. Essays must not have been previously published, or simultaneously submitted for consideration elsewhere. For undergraduate or Masters’ degree candidates whose essays form part of the requirements for a degree awarded by examination, essays must be submitted to the competition after the examination process has been concluded. Selected essays will be peer-reviewed and judged by the Editors on the basis of the essay’s contribution to the advancement of the field, originality of the argument, and scholarly presentation.
