2017 Thematic Working Groups
APRU SCL provides attendees unique opportunities to participate in thematic working groups (WG). Members of each WG will work intensively throughout the conference to craft a collaborative paper on their theme. The WG papers are intended for submission for the first volume of a book series or journal publication. Attendees who wish to join a working group should submit a 2-page CV including your recent publication record, accompanied by a one-page description of why you want to engage in the WG and your expertise in relation to it.
