Call for Papers: 11th Annual Princeton University Graduate Conference in Political Theory
The 11th Annual Princeton University Graduate Conference in Political Theory will be held from April 13-14, 2018.
The Conference offers graduate students a unique opportunity to present and receive feedback on works in progress. Each session focuses exclusively on one paper. After receiving feedback from a Princeton graduate student discussant, each author engages in an extensive question and answer period with Princeton faculty, students, and guests.
We are delighted to announce that Professor Amy Allen of Pennsylvania State University will deliver the 2018 keynote address. In addition, we are pleased to announce a special roundtable with Professor John Dunn (Cambridge) and Professor Sunil Khilnani (KCL) on “Democracy and Dissent in China and India”.
We welcome papers addressing any topic in political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought. Papers related to topics in feminist theory, critical social theory, and critical race theory, are especially encouraged.
