Political Studies Association, Annual International Conference
10-13 April 2022, University of York (Hybrid Conference)


The PSA Technology, Internet, and Policy Group (TIP) invites members to submit paper or panel proposals for the inaugural Technology, Internet, and Policy panel streams at the PSA Annual International Conference 2022. 

TIP is a new PSA specialist group. It is a professional network open to those studying technology and the internet in its broadest sense, those who specifically study technology and internet policy, and those who are engaged in technology and internet policy-making or who wish to be so. See this blog post for more information about the group.

The theme of the conference is Politics from the Margins. Papers and panels may be on any topic within the remit of the group. They will be considered on merit and their fit with other proposals submitted. We especially welcome submissions that reflect the diversity of the profession and those researching the Global South. We also highly encourage submissions from early career researchers and PhD students. Please note this is a hybrid conference. See the main PSA call for papers here

To celebrate the establishment of TIP, there will be a launch event at the conference in York. There will also be hybrid coffee breaks, where those attending virtually will be able to socialise and network via video link. 

Instruction for submission

Please submit your abstracts (max 250 words) and panel proposals (3-4 abstracts with a 150 word max panel outline) by Friday 1st October 2021, using this form

You will be notified of acceptance by Wednesday 6th October 2021, and be required to submit your abstract/panel via Ex Ordo by October 11th 2021.

We will provide specific guidance on how to submit your abstract/panel proposal via Ex Ordo when we notify you that your submission has been accepted to our panel stream. We apologise for the short turn around on the call for papers, this is due to the fact the group has only been very recently launched. 

All-male panels will not be considered.
