The conference offers graduate students and postdocs the opportunity to present their research in a vibrant intellectual environment and receive feedback from dedicated discussants. Each session will give those presenting a chance to engage with faculty and students from the University of Amsterdam, the Vrije Universiteit as well as the keynote speakers.
The theme for this inaugural event is: “Bringing Theory to Practice". This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
- The ways in which normative political theory can or should be in dialogue with the empirical study of society, i.e. how normative-institutional prescriptions should be informed by empirical evidence; how empirical studies should be responsive to normative considerations.
- The new challenges to democratic participation and political decision-making in a 'post-truth' world characterised by citizens' alleged distrust of traditional institutions (e.g. mass media, scientific expertise, parliaments) and the affordances of digital and social media.
- Doing normative political theory in non-ideal conditions: theorising the changing world order (e.g. Trumpian foreign policy, the rise of nationalist movements, climate change, mass migration, as well as resistance, e.g. by fourth wave feminist movements).
Papers that address any of these topics are welcome, as are papers that address the conference theme more broadly. This conference is aimed at researchers working on any subfield and/or tradition of Political Theory/Political Philosophy. We also welcome papers from interdisciplinary researchers (e.g. Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science) whose work is at the intersection of normative and empirical studies of society.
