The LSE Department of Government is pleased to announce that its 10th Annual Political Theory Graduate Conference will be held on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th May 2024. 

We are delighted to announce that the conference will feature keynotes from Dr Lucy McDonald (King's College London) and Dr Elke Schwarz (Queen Mary University of London).

The aim of the conference is to give graduate students working in the field of political theory (broadly conceived to include critical and legal theory as well as the history of political thought and analytic political philosophy) an opportunity to present and receive feedback on their projects from peers and LSE faculty and build a wider community of graduate political theorists across the UK, Europe and beyond.  

We are planning to hold the conference completely in person. 
If you wish to present a paper, please send an anonymised abstract of no more than 500 words, free of any identifying information, through this form by 5 pm GMT on March 15th 2024. Papers on any theme or topic within political theory and political philosophy will be considered. All abstracts will undergo a double-blind review process. We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups. 

We aim to notify all applicants about the outcome of their submission in early April.
