The APT conference has taken place annually in Oxford in January since the 1970s, and is the flagship event of the scholarly community of political theorists across the UK and Ireland. It brings together scholars working across the whole field of political thought.

In addition to the traditional plenary papers, which in January 2021 will include James Alexander (Bilkent), Maeve Cooke (UCD), Juliet Hooker (Brown), and Quentin Skinner (QMUL) there will be panel sessions, roundtables, and workshops.

We are excited to invite different types of proposals from political theorists, philosophers, and historians of political thought:

(1) Paper abstracts (300 words);
(2) Proposals for panels consisting of 3-4 papers (up to 750 words); Please include names, contact details, and provisional titles for each individual paper;
(3) ‘Author meets critics’ or topic focussed roundtables – c500 words to include names (provisional at least) and contact details of all participants;
(4) First book workshop (where monograph manuscripts will be presented by authors and discussed with selected respondents) – please submit a description of your manuscript in no more than 750 words; and include names and contact details of potential participants.

As in 2020, we look forward to a conference that represents a diverse set of intellectual traditions, including analytic and normative political philosophy, the history of ideas, all traditions of critical theory, comparative/global political theory, and so on. Panels that cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries and submissions from graduate students are welcomed. Convenors of panel sessions should consider diversity of participants.

To submit an abstract, a panel proposal, a roundtable, or a proposal for a first book workshop, please visit the APT conference website: https://www.associationforpoliticalthought.ac.uk. The final deadline for submission is 11 pm UK time on Friday April 30th 2020.
