Duke Graduate Conference in Political Theory (2015)

The Political Science department at Duke University will host a Graduate Conference in Political Theory on February 12-13, 2015. We invite submissions for this conference from graduate students in any discipline. Proposals on any topic in the fields of political theory, political philosophy, or the history of political thought will be considered.

In addition to building community among graduate students at different universities, this conference offers graduate students a rare opportunity to receive feedback on their work from eminent scholars in the field. Among the Duke faculty who have agreed to participate in the discussion of student papers are Michael Gillespie, Ruth Grant, Thomas Spragens, Kathi Weeks, Jack Knight and Michael Hardt. We are also pleased to announce that Josiah Ober of Stanford University will join us as the keynote speaker for the conference.
Attendees will be provided with housing at a hotel in downtown Durham, shuttle service to and from Duke, and meals for the duration of their stay, thanks to the generous support of the Program in American Values and Institutions. We will also provide substantial travel stipends, though the exact amount is yet to be determined. Participants are expected to attend the entire conference.
