Proposal Submission Instructions

Proposal Submission Deadline: January 4, 2023

Thank you for your interest in the 7th International Conference on Hate Studies. The proposal submission process is now closed.


Should you have any questions about the submission process, contact Dr. Jim Mohr or Vicky Nann.


Program Decisions and Notifications: The conference committee will seek to include as many submissions as schedule constraints and quality of submissions permit. The conference committee will send notification of decisions and invitations to present by January 22, 2022. If you do not receive an official e-mail by this date, it may be because you did not complete the submission process properly, your email address is incorrect, or your email has spam filters that are blocking the incoming email. Please e-mail the conference organizers with questions or concerns.

Registration: All presenters must register and submit payment due by  February 15, 2023 March 15, 2023. Only those presenters who have completed their registration, including all registration fees, will be allowed to participate in the conference. Please e-mail the conference organizers with questions or concerns.

Session and Event Scheduling: All sessions and events will take place on the Spokane Community College campus. Although we will try to honor and accommodate scheduling requests, it is not possible to guarantee any session or presenter a specific day or time on the conference program. Session scheduling will not be finalized until 30 days in advance of the conference. Facilities are accessible.

Policy on No-Shows: A “no-show” is someone who is listed on the event program but who is not present at their scheduled session and who has not notified the conference organizers 30 days in advance of the conference of their inability to attend and has not made alternate arrangements for presentation (e.g., having one’s paper presentation read by an alternate who will attend the conference). No-showing may be unavoidable in some very unusual cases, but in general presenters are reminded that no-showing disrupts the overall conference and negatively affects the session chairs, presenters, commentators, and attendees. No refunds will be given for no-shows, and you are responsible for finding your own alternative presenter, when feasible.


A selection of conference papers will be published in the Journal of Hate Studies (JHS), a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published by Gonzaga University’s Center for the Study of Hate. JHS is committed to excellence and innovation in the scholarly study of hate by providing a forum for discussion of research-based practices to counter dehumanization in any manifestation.

Submissions are generally accepted each spring for the Journal of Hate Studies and should represent original or substantially original work not previously published elsewhere. Contributions should be 5,000-7,000 words in length and be formatted according to the APA 7th Edition.

The selection process for publication is a competitive one. Papers will be blind peer reviewed and vetted by the Journal of Hate Studies Editorial Board for alignment with Gonzaga University and the Center for the Study of Hate mission and vision.
