NEPSA 2023: APRIL 20-22


The New England Political Science Association invites proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables to be presented at its 2022 Annual Meeting, which will convene April 20-22 at Hilton Mystic in Mystic, Connecticut. Panels will be offered on Friday, April 21, and Saturday April 22; a pre-conference welcome event will be held on the evening of Thursday, April 20.

In NEPSA’s 75th year, we continue to welcome a broad array of panel and paper proposals reflecting the various subfields of our discipline.  NEPSA has the following dedicated sections:

Public Law

Public Policy

Race, Gender, and Intersectionality

Technology and Politics

American Politics

Comparative and Canadian Politics

International Relations

Political Theory

Politics and History

NEPSA is pleased to announce the debut of the Race, Gender, and Intersectionality section for the 2023 Annual Meeting.  The précis of the section is as follows:

In recent years, the critical concerns of REP, Gender/Sexuality, and Intersectionality scholarship have become, more than ever, central features of political discourse, both in America and around the world. We invite proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables that emphasize: (1) the electoral mobilization, political empowerment, representation, power dynamics, political consciousness, and rise of leaders from marginalized communities; (2) patterns of intra- and inter-group policy conflict, as well as racial/gendered disparities in labor markets, housing, professions, education, health care, criminal injustice, electoral access, environmental risk, immigration, and other key policy arenas including developments in the ever-shifting terrain of LGBTQI+ rights; and/or (3) the politics and practices of social movements to end police violence, dismantle patriarchal systems, protect immigrants, and build community power.

Proposals from undergraduates will once again be considered for presentation.  Undergraduate proposals will be evaluated on a competitive basis by a special Undergraduate Proposals Committee.  Accepted proposals will present on panels dedicated to undergraduate research; presenters must be accompanied at the conference by a sponsoring faculty member.


Proposals for individual papers, full panels, and roundtables – as well as offers to serve as panel chairs and/or discussants – may also be submitted through the appropriate entries in the “2023 CONFERENCE” drop-down menu above.  Except in special situations, individuals are restricted to two paper proposals.

The deadline for submissions to the 2023 Annual Meeting is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2022.
