Subject Fields:

This year the 15th graduate conference invites applications for participation in both research workshops track and in methodological workshops. We invite applications for paper presentations in the 15th Annual Conference from graduate students and recent PhDs in the fields of Political Science, International Relations, Public Policy, as well as from Politics and Law, Political Economy, Political Philosophy, Political Psychology, Political Sociology, and Political Communication.

Research Workshops: Graduate students are encouraged to submit paper abstracts (no longer than 300 words) in English only, to be considered to one (or more) of the ten research workshops.  Because the number of participants in each workshop is limited, the workshop leader/s will choose those proposals most suited to the workshop.  Submissions should represent original research. All workshop participants must submit a paper ahead of the workshop, read the papers of the other participants, and take an active part in the workshop.  Workshops usually run a full day or half a day, depending on the number of participants, and most of them will take place on December 12th. Participants are committed to attend the workshop proceedings throughout this time.

Methodological Workshops: In addition to the ten research workshops, seven methodological workshops will take place on December 11th. As with the research workshops, the methodology workshops require an intensive commitment on the part of the participants.  The methodology workshops are intended mostly for students participating in the two days of the Conference, so students are encouraged to apply both to the methodological workshops (without paper presentations),  and  to the research workshops.

 

Submission Guidelines

Application forms are available on the Conference website address (http://gradcon.huji.ac.il). The applications should be submitted as soon as possible, and no later than October 31, 2019. Please submit your abstract and indicate the relevant choices for the research workshop(s) and for the methodological workshop, through the website. 

In addition, please send a Word version of your abstract to the Academic Convenor of the Conference, Prof. Arie M. Kacowicz, arie.kacowicz@mail.huji.ac.il.

 

Applicants will be notified by November 7, 2019, regarding acceptance of their paper and participation in the Conference.

Upon acceptance, registration for the conference (including payment) should be completed by November 15, 2019 through the website. After this date, late registration fees might apply.  Regular conference registration fee is 150 Israeli Shekel (for methodological and research workshops alike). 

Applicants for the Best Paper Award should submit a full copy of their papers no later than November 15, 2019 by e-mail.  All papers should be sent to discussants and workshop leaders by December 1, 2019.

 

Best Paper Award

A committee comprised of leading scholars in the fields of Political Science, International Relations, and Public Policy will select the best paper presented at the Conference.  Paper submitted via email by midnight November 15, 2019, will be considered for the award.  Co-authored papers are accepted only if all the authors are graduate students.  The length of the paper should not exceed 8,000 words (including bibliography and notes). Although PhD dissertations and MA thesis are not eligible for the competition, papers based on these may be submitted.

 

Looking Forward to Meeting you in Jerusalem in December!
