The 13th Princeton University Graduate Conference in Political Theory will be held from Friday, April 23 to Saturday, April 24, 2021. Submissions are currently being accepted.

The conference offers graduate students a unique opportunity to present and receive feedback on works in progress. Each session focuses exclusively on one paper. After receiving feedback from a Princeton graduate student discussant, each author will engage in an extensive question and answer period with Princeton faculty, students, and guests.

The conference also features a keynote address from a distinguished scholar. Previous keynote speakers include Katrina Forrester, Alan Ryan, David Estlund, Sharon Krause, Patchen Markell, Elisabeth Ellis, Jill Frank, and Bryan Garsten, Hélène Landemore, Alison McQueen, and Corey Robin.

We are delighted to announce that Desmond Jagmohan (UC Berkeley) will delivery the 2021 keynote address. 

Conference attendance is free and open to the extended Princeton community and affiliates of neighboring institutions. Please see the registration page for information on how to attend.

The conference is generously supported by the University Center for Human Values and the Department of Politics.
