Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2023 Oxford Graduate Conference in Political Theory, to be held on the 24th-25th April 2023 at Nuffield College, Oxford.

This year we are honoured to host two keynote lectures that will be delivered by Andrea Sangiovanni and Lawrie Balfour.

We welcome submissions from graduate students in any area of political theory, including, but not limited to critical theory, history of political thought, analytical political philosophy, and continental social and political thought. Interested applicants should send anonymised abstracts of no more than 500 words — along with a separate cover sheet detailing the applicant’s name, paper title, and institutional affiliation — to [email protected] by 1 February 2023. Abstracts should include keywords to indicate the primary research areas of the paper.

The 2023 conference will be held in-person. We have a limited number of small travel grants available for those who cannot attain institutional funding. Please indicate whether you would like to apply for a travel grant when you submit your abstract. 

Conference registration is free of charge. The registration deadline for those who wish to attend the conference without presenting a paper is 1 April 2023. Please address any inquiries regarding the conference to the organisers at [email protected]. Support for the 2023 Graduate Conference has been generously provided by Nuffield College and by the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford.
