Keynote Speaker Announced!
We are very excited to announce that Professor Peter J. Katzenstein will deliver the Keynote Address at the OCIS 2016. 
Professor Katzenstein is Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies at Cornell University and is one of the most influential scholars of his generation. We look forward to welcoming him to The University of Queensland and to the OCIS community.
The Seventh Oceanic Conference on International Studies (OCIS) will be held at the University of Queensland, (St Lucia) Brisbane Australia, on 4-6 July 2016. 

Held every two years, OCIS is the premier conference in international studies held in Australasia. It brings together scholars working across all fields of international studies, and is known for its relaxed yet intellectually stimulating atmosphere. Attended by leading scholars in the field internationally, it is also a wonderful venue for junior scholars to air their evolving ideas. 

We invite proposals in all areas of international studies. Applicants can submit individual paper proposals, or proposals for complete panels. With the latter, we are keen that panel proposals be gender balanced and include a mix of junior and senior scholars. The deadline for proposals was 20 Jan 2016.

The School of Political Science and International Studies at UQ hosted OCIS in 2008, and we are very much looking forward to hosting the international studies community once again.
