The 16th Princeton University Graduate Conference in Political Theory will be held from Friday, April 19 to Saturday, April 20, 2024.

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 Alexander Gourevitch, Katrina Forrester, Alan Ryan, David Estlund, Sharon Krause, Patchen Markell, Elisabeth Ellis, Jill Frank, Bryan Garsten, Hélène Landemore, Alison McQueen, Corey Robin, and Daniela Cammack.

We are delighted to announce that Professor Madhav Khosla (Columbia Law) will deliver the 2024 keynote address.
