Proposals for refereed papers should deal closely with issues related to the conference theme of “College Sports in Recessionary Times.” In order for your paper to be considered for one of the free paper sessions, please submit by e-mail attachment an abstract of no more than 300 words to John Thelin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research papers can be related to sport in general (as long as there are clear implications for college sport) or intercollegiate athletics specifically, with connection to the conference theme of “College Sports in a Recessionary Time.” Your scholarship may be based in the sciences, social sciences, economics, humanities, or any number of professional fields related to intercollegiate athletics.
