IBR Research Groups are specially designed to gather a community of scholars to study one particular topic for three or more years. Non-members are warmly welcomed to visit IBR Research Groups and we encourage members to commit to one group across multiple years.

About Research Groups
How They Work
Research Groups run for an initial three-year period, allowing participants to consider topics from various perspectives.
Each group elects how best to approach their topic of interest and not every group issues a call for papers in any given year. The conveners may engage invited papers, panel discussions, or other avenues to best engage a topic. Often, the work of a group results in a published volume of essays.
Start a New Group
The Emerging Scholarship groups are designed to provide emerging scholars an opportunity to receive feedback from senior scholars and mentors. These groups engage new presenters each year.
Can I attend a group if I’m not an IBR member?
Yes! All are welcome.
Can I visit multiple groups at the Annual Meeting?
It’s possible, but a little tricky since most Research Groups meet at the same time.
Can I participate if a group has started its 3-year run?
Yes! You can start participating any time during a group’s duration. Initially, you might want to visit several groups, but we do encourage you to work with one group over its multi-year run.
