The Association for Political Theory invites proposals for a conference to be held October 17-19, 2003, at Calvin College's Prince Conference Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Association for Political Theory is a new national association devoted to supporting the work of political theorists. One of the central aims of the APT Conference will be to provide a collegial setting in which scholars of all ranks and from all types of institutions will come to know one another while pursuing discussions of their works.
The Association welcomes submissions on all topics in and from all approaches to political theory, political philosophy, and the history of political thought. Faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars are welcome to apply. Papers reflecting on the state of the field are particularly encouraged. In addition, the Program Committee welcomes suggestions for papers or roundtables on the teaching of political theory and the history of political thought. Individuals interested in serving as panel chairs or commentators may also apply. Applicants should be aware that space limitations at the Prince Conference Center might restrict the number of proposals accepted. For more information on the Association and the conference, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the on-line APT Gateway.
