NEPSA 2020: APRIL 23-25



The New England Political Science Association invites proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables to be presented at its 2020 Annual Meeting, which will convene on April 23-25, at the Hilton Mystic in Mystic, Connecticut.  Panels will be offered on Friday, April 24, and Saturday April 25; a pre-conference welcome event will be held on the evening of Thursday, April 23.

In NEPSA’s 72nd year, we continue to welcome a broad array of panel and paper proposals reflecting the various subfields of our discipline.  NEPSA has the following dedicated sections:

Politics and History

Public Law

Public Policy

Technology and Politics

American Politics

Comparative and Canadian Politics

International Relations

Political Theory

Proposals from undergraduates will once again be considered for presentation.  Undergraduate proposals will be evaluated on a competitive basis by a special Undergraduate Proposals Committee.  Accepted proposals will present on panels dedicated to undergraduate research; undergraduate presenters must be accompanied at the conference by a sponsoring faculty member.

To submit a proposal for an individual paper, a full panel, or a roundtable, or to volunteer to serve as a panel chair or a panel discussant, please click on the appropriate link in the "2020 CONFERENCE" drop-down menu above.  Except in special situations, individuals are restricted to two paper proposals.

The UPDATED deadline for submissions to the 2020 conference is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2019.
