The Political Science department at Duke University will host its annual Graduate Conference in Political Theory on February 8-9, 2018. We will consider proposals from graduate students in any related discipline, and on any topic in the fields of political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought. We particularly welcome submissions which will engage a diverse audience.

We are also pleased to announce that John McCormick of the University of Chicago will join us as the keynote speaker for the conference. read more...
