Last week IAMCR's newsletter was sent to members. It included 
information about our upcoming conference, some of which we include here 
for the benefit of non-members (who are welcome to join IAMCR and/or to 
attend the conference).

Hosted by the Complutense University in Madrid, Spain, the conference 
will take place from 7 - 11 July 2019. The conference website is at 
https://iamcr.org/madrid2019 in English and 
https://iamcr.org/es/madrid2019-es in Spanish.

You can consult the general call for proposals 
<https://iamcr.org/madrid2019/cfp> as well as the specific calls of 
IAMCR's 32 thematic sections and working groups 

All proposals must be submitted through IAMCR's Open Conference System 
(OCS) at https://iamcr-ocs.org 
<https://iamcr-ocs.org/index.php/2019/2019>. The OCS site opened on 3 
December and will remain open to receive your proposals until the *8 
February 2019 deadline*.

The newsletter included a letter from Loreto Corredoira 
<https://iamcr.org/news/letter-from-2019-loc>, head of the local 
organising committee. Among other things, Loreto announced the names of 
two invited speakers: Spanish philosopher, essayist and playwright,
