The LSE Department of Government is pleased to announce its first Political Theory Graduate Conference to take place on 19 and 20 March, 2015. The aim of the conference is to give graduate students working in the field of political theory (broadly conceived) an opportunity to present and discuss their projects with peers, receive feedback for work in progress, and build a wider community of graduate political theorists across the UK, Europe and beyond.
Papers on any theme or topic within political theory and philosophy — from the history of political thought to contemporary normative and critical theory — will be considered.
The Britain and Ireland Association for Political Thought is pleased to announce pre-registration for its 2015 Conference, to be held at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford (January 8th-10th):

2.30-4.00. Leigh Jenco (LSE): “What is the Revival of Confucianism Really Reviving? Towards a “creative engagement” with traditions in the Global Age”

We are happy to announce that the Third Sciences Po Graduate Political Theory Conference is going to take place at Sciences Po, Paris, 11-12 June, 2015.
We welcome contributions from young political theorists across the board and intend to accommodate various approaches to political theory (analytical, historical, normative and critical). We also aim at geographic diversity, in that we shall try to foster a substantial academic dialogue between young political theorists from Europe and their peers across the world.
Seyla Benhabib (Yale University) will deliver the keynote address. The work of Seyla Benhabib covers a broad range of topics regarding feminist theory, democratic theory and critical theory. Benhabib wrote extensively on issues related to human rights, identity politics, culture and cosmopolitanism and the writings of Hannah Arendt and Jürgen Habermas. Contributions that touch upon any of these subject-matters are encouraged, but we welcome proposals on other topics as well.

THE 2015 ANNUAL MONTREAL POLITICAL THEORY MANUSCRIPT WORKSHOP AWARD
Call for applications: The Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire en philosophie politique de Montréal (GRIPP), spanning the departments of political science and philosophy at McGill University, l’Université de Montréal, Concordia University, and l’Université du Québec à Montréal, invites applications for its 2015 manuscript workshop award. The recipient of the award will be invited to Montreal for a day-long workshop in April/May 2015 dedicated to his or her book manuscript. This “author meets critics” workshop will comprise four to five sessions dedicated to critical discussion of the manuscript; each session will begin with a critical commentary on a section of the manuscript by a political theorist or philosopher who is part of Montreal’s GRIPP community. The format is designed to maximize feedback for a book-in-progress. The award covers the costs of travel, accommodation, and meals.
The Department of Philosophy and Humanities at Texas A&M University will be hosting the ninth independent conference of the Hannah Arendt Circle, April 23–25, 2015.
