The Graduate Conference in Political Theory at Princeton University will be held from April 11-12, 2014.
The Committee for the Graduate Conference in Political Theory at Princeton University welcomes papers addressing any topic in political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought. Papers should be submitted via the conference website by January 17, 2014. Approximately eight papers will be selected.
The conference offers graduate students from across institutions a unique opportunity to present and critique new work. Each session, led by a discussant from Princeton, focuses exclusively on one paper and features an extensive question and answer period with Princeton faculty and graduate students. Papers are pre-circulated among conference participants.
This year, the Committee proudly announces that Professor Bryan Garsten, Yale University, will deliver the keynote address.
- Due date: January 17, 2014
- How to submit: Submissions must be uploaded in PDF format to the submission management platform.
- Length: Papers should be no more than 7500 words.
- Format: Papers should be formatted for blind review by removing any identifying information from the document.
Papers will be refereed by political theory graduate students in the Department of Politics at Princeton. Acceptance notices will be sent in February. The authors of accepted papers will be expected to attend the duration of the two-day conference and participate in each session.
Assistance for invited participants' transportation, lodging and meal expenses is available from the Committee, which acknowledges the generous support of University Center for Human Values and the Department of Politics at Princeton University.
