Sciences Po Political Theory Graduate Conference (Paris June 2014)

Keynote Speaker: Jeremy Waldron

We are happy to announce that the Second Sciences Po Graduate Political Theory Conference is going to take place at Sciences Po, Paris, from June 19 to June 20 2014.

We welcome contributions from young political theorists across the board and intend to accommodate various approaches to political theory (analytical, normative, critical, historical). We also aim at geographic diversity, in that we shall try to foster a substantial academic dialogue between young political theorists from Europe and their peers across the world.
Jeremy Waldron (Oxford/NYU) will deliver the keynote address. The work of Jeremy Waldron covers a wide spectrum, including theories of rights, questions of dignity, torture and hate speech, the problems of justice and equality, and the relationship between law and politics. Contributions that touch upon any of these subject-matters are warmly encouraged, but we are open to proposals on other topics as well.
Only graduate students who have not defended their PhD are eligible. Each (2 to 2 and ½ hours-long) session of the conference will concentrate on two to three papers and will be chaired by a Sciences Po graduate student. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A period open to the public (professors and graduate students alike).
Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will also be provided for the duration of the conference.
Submission deadline: February 28, 2014
Submission/selection procedure: A detailed abstract (between 500 and 750 words) of the proposal should be sent to in PDF format, prepared for blind review. You should also send us a separate document, mentioning your name, the title of your proposal, and your institutional affiliation. Political theory students from the Ecole Doctorale of Sciences Po, Paris, will select approximately 15 proposals on a blind basis. The proposals and final papers should be written in English, which is also the working language of the Graduate Conference. The selected participants will be notified of their acceptance by April 15, 2014. All the other proposals will be acknowledged.
Selection committee: Benjamin Boudou, Amélie Ferey, Marianne Fougère, Maurits De Jongh, Yoel Mitrani, Andrei Poama, Denis Ramond, Elise Rouméas, Tom Theuns
