We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Oxford Graduate Conference in Political Theory, to be held on the 29th and 30th April 2019 at Nuffield College, University of Oxford.

The two-day conference will provide a constructive forum for graduate students to present high-quality work in political theory, exchange ideas with peers, and receive feedback from leading academics in the field. The keynote lecture will be delivered by Lea Ypi, Professor in Political Theory in the Government Department, London School of Economics, and Adjunct Associate Professor in Philosophy at the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University.
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, continental social and political thought. Interested applicants should send anonymised abstracts of 700–1,000 words — along with a separate cover sheet detailing the applicant’s name, paper title, and institutional affiliation — to by 1 February 2019. Abstracts should include keywords to indicate the primary research areas of the paper.

Conference registration is free of charge and limited number of bursaries are available for presenters who are unable to secure funding from their home institutions. The registration deadline for those who wish to attend the conference without presenting a paper is 1 April 2019.

Please address any inquiries regarding the conference to the organisers at
