We are happy to announce that the Third Sciences Po Graduate Political Theory Conference is going to take place at Sciences Po, Paris, 11-12 June, 2015.

We welcome contributions from young political theorists across the board and intend to accommodate various approaches to political theory (analytical, historical, normative and critical). We also aim at geographic diversity, in that we shall try to foster a substantial academic dialogue between young political theorists from Europe and their peers across the world.

Seyla Benhabib (Yale University) will deliver the keynote address. The work of Seyla Benhabib covers a broad range of topics regarding feminist theory, democratic theory and critical theory. Benhabib wrote extensively on issues related to human rights, identity politics, culture and cosmopolitanism and the writings of Hannah Arendt and Jürgen Habermas. Contributions that touch upon any of these subject-matters are encouraged, but we welcome proposals on other topics as well.

Only graduate students who have not defended their PhD are eligible. Each two hours-long session of the conference will concentrate on two to three papers and will be chaired by a Sciences Po graduate student. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session open to the public.

Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will also be provided for the duration of the conference. Unfortunately, Sciences Po will not be able to provide funds for housing and transportation.
