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.
