Rethinking Remoteness, Isolation, and Peripherality

11-18 September 2019, Svaneti & Tbilisi, Georgia

This multidisciplinary conference critically examines the purported drawbacks and potential benefits to remoteness, isolation, and peripherality. We welcome presentations addressing any region of the world as well as innovative perspectives that highlight the complex intersections of multiple peoples, places, and polities. Presentations last 15 minutes and will be followed by around 5 minutes’ question time. Note that, due to the ‘remote’ location of the conference, audio-visual aids will not be available for presentations.

The first deadline for abstracts is 30 September 2018. (Later abstracts may be accepted if there is room available at the conference, but people who submit an abstract prior to the deadline will have the first opportunity to reserve a spot and to take advantage of the early registration rate.)

Proposing a presentation.

To propose a presentation, fill in the form to the right.

Abstract: The abstract of your talk must be between 150-200 words total, including title. Shorter or longer submissions may be ignored. Do not format the text using italics, bold, or underlined words, and avoid discipline-specific jargon and citations to other works.

Biographical Note: Your biographical note (maximum 100 words) should be written in complete sentences and include your research areas, academic degree, and affiliation as applicable. If the presentation has more than one author, the corresponding author should provide biographical notes for the other authors as well.

If you have any questions, please e-mail convenor Shawn M. Clankie (
