CFP: Graduate Student Conference in Political Theory

Via Don Tontiplaphol, a call for papers:

Harvard University
Graduate Student Conference in Political Theory
Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, 2007

Details below the fold…

The
Department of Government (FAS) at Harvard University will host a conference for
graduate students in political theory and political philosophy from November 30-December
1, 2007. Papers on any theme or topic
within political theory–from the history of political thought to contemporary
normative and conceptual theory–will be considered. Roughly seven papers will be accepted.

Each
presentation should last no longer than 45 minutes, so please limit your paper
submission to 20 double-spaced pages. Please
format it for blind review: the text
should include your title but also be free of personal and institutional
information; and a separate cover page should include your title, a brief
abstract (100 words max.), and your name, e-mail address, and institutional
affiliation.

The
keynote address will be given by Professor Joshua Cohen (Stanford); a Harvard
faculty member will deliver opening remarks; and discussion panels comprised of
Harvard faculty and graduate students will accompany each accepted paper. Time permitting, each presenter will have a
chance to answer questions during a general discussion period after each panel
discussion.

Food
and housing will be provided by the Government Department and its graduate
students. Unfortunately, Harvard will
not be able to provide funds for transportation.

Submissions
are due via e-mail (in PDF) on August 31, 2007. Acceptance notices will
be sent on September 30, 2007. Papers will be refereed by juries
composed of
current graduate students in the Government Department at Harvard.

Questions,
comments, and submissions should be sent to: <theorycon07.harvard[at]gmail.com>.
