APSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition Call for Proposals September 30 – October 3 "Promoting Pluralism"

The American Political Science Association (APSA) is very pleased to announce the 2021 Call for Proposals for the 117th APSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition, held in Seattle, Washington, September 30 – October 3, 2021, to address the latest scholarship in political science. The theme for the 2021 annual meeting is “Promoting Pluralism. This call for proposals opens in the midst of political, economic, and social upheaval that portends significant transformations across the globe. The answers to what these global shifts mean for governments, nations, communities and individuals are neither straightforward nor obvious, and the tools necessary to examine them are varied and expansive. More than ever, political science is positioned to address pressing questions of this moment and beyond, provided we embrace and promote the rich intellectual pluralism of our discipline – in methodology, methods, behavior, institutions, and perspective. In addition, we recognize that the diversity of our scholars in terms of racial and ethnic background, nationality, gender, sexuality, and gender expression, institutions and professional career stage contributes to knowledge and ways of understanding the world.

To learn more about the annual meeting proposal options, submission guidelines and the conference theme, please visit the 2021 APSA Annual Meeting website.
