Call for Poster Presentations for Political Thought Conference 2018

Proposals are invited from PhD and early postdoctoral students for a newly introduced poster presentation session at the APT Oxford Political Thought conference at St Catherine’s College 4-6 January 2018. Posters are invited in three broad thematic areas which match other items on the conference programme:  Climate change;  Religion;  Social justice.

A limited number of proposals will be selected for presentation. Invited speakers at the conference will be available at the poster session to comment on the presentations and to discuss your research.

The APT is one of the longest established meeting of political theorists in Britain. Consisting mainly of plenary sessions at which all papers are invited, it is strikingly and unusually pluralist. It attracts an international range of researchers from all the sub-fields of political theory: normative and critical; analytic and interpretive; historical and contemporary; Anglo-American and Continental European. Taking place over three days and two nights at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, the Political Thought Conference is a chance to catch up with colleagues and to meet publishers, journal editors and research funders. It is an ideal opportunity for graduate students and early-career researchers to talk with established leaders of the field who are there to hear the newest voices.

For this year’s conference, speakers confirmed so far include: Melissa Lane (Princeton) Shalini Satkunanandan (UC Davis),  Tim Hayward (Edinburgh) and Faisal Devji (Oxford). 

Please send abstracts – no more than 500 words – by July 24 2017,  of your idea for a poster presentation to  On a separate sheet, please supply the following information: name, institution/department, degree course, year of degree course, name of supervisor, and estimated date of thesis submission (or date of viva).
