The Association for Political Theory (APT) invites paper proposals for its annual conference to be held November 12th-14th, 2020, at the campus of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We will consider papers on all topics in political theory, political philosophy and their cognate disciplines, from scholars working in any field at any institution. Any scholars who are ABD or who hold a terminal degree in their fields may apply; we also encourage faculty members to volunteer to serve as chairs and/or discussants.
How to Apply:
(1) Proposers must be members of the Association. Membership is free; if you are not yet a member, please submit an application at: https://associationforpoliticaltheory.org/Member_Sign_Up by January 31, 2020.
(2) Abstracts of up to 400 words are due by midnight PST on Monday, February 10, 2020 at: https://associationforpoliticaltheory.org/Paper_Proposal_Form
You must log in to your account to submit. Each member may submit one proposal and may be a co-author on one proposal submitted by someone else. The APT conference does not accept full panel or roundtable proposals.
(3) Selection Process: all abstracts are anonymously reviewed and rated by members of the Program Committee. Authors are notified of their acceptance/rejection or wait list status by the end of April.
Once again, the APT will hold up to four workshop panels on Thursday Nov. 12. Workshop panels consist of three presenters and a chair; instead of a traditional discussant, the panelists and pre-registered audience members will read all papers and prepare written comments for the presenters before the conference. At the conference, participants will spend approximately 30 minutes workshopping each of the papers.
Presenters at workshop panels must be able to arrive for the conference by Thursday afternoon, November 12th. Please also note that participants in workshop panels may not able to attend some other pre-conference programming (such as pre-conference workshops, First Book Manuscript Workshop, etc.).
