The political science graduate students at Stanford University will host a political theory conference on June 4-5, 2021. The format will be hybrid in-person and virtual, with the possibility of being entirely virtual depending on current events. 

We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker will be Professor Daniela Cammack (University of California, Berkeley).

Approximately 6-8 graduate students will be invited to present their papers in panel format to an interdisciplinary group of faculty, post-docs, and students. Papers from all themes and topics in political theory will be accepted, but special emphasis will be placed on accepting papers that engage with empirical literature from any discipline (political science, psychology, history, economics, etc.).

Submissions are due via email by March 1st, 2021 and acceptances will be announced in early April. Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words using the following form:

For those travelling, food and housing, as well as a small travel stipend, will be provided, thanks to generous support from the Stanford Vice Provost for Graduate Education SPICE Grant and the McCoy Center for Ethics in Society.
