CFP: Warwick Annual Grad Conference in Political Theory

Warwick 11th Annual Graduate Conference in Political Theory
14th February 2009

On Saturday 14th February 2009 from 10.00am to 6.30pm, the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick will host its eleventh annual conference for postgraduate students working in political theory or political philosophy. Previous events have been very successful, attracting a wide range of high quality papers, and participants from many countries. Past participants have reported that the conference provides a useful opportunity for graduate students to gain experience and receive feedback on work in progress. As well as postgraduate papers, there will be two plenary sessions:

Mathew Humphrey, University of Nottingham: 'Ideal Democratic Theory and Citizen Behaviour'
Leif Wenar, King's College London: 'Property Rights and the Resource Curse'

Postgraduates interested in giving papers should send abstracts (400-500 words) by no later than 21st January 2009. Papers may deal with any area within contemporary political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought, but should take no more than twenty minutes to present. It would be appreciated if those wanting to attend the conference would reserve a place no later than 6th February 2009. Attendance is free of charge and the Department will provide lunch.

All correspondence and further inquiries should be addressed to Matthew Clayton.
