The New York State Political Science Association invites proposals for panels or individual papers for our 2022 Annual Conference.

The 2022 Annual Conference will be virtual in format, with both live and prerecorded content including panels, roundtables, and addresses. The format (live or recorded) will be up to the discretion of the officers and section heads. Our virtual format allows for much easier participation for scholars from a wide range of locations. Scholars from distant time zones may wish to request a prerecorded session for the sake of convenience.

We welcome faculty and graduate student proposals from history, philosophy, psychology, gender studies, economics, law, organizational studies, and sociology as well as interdisciplinary proposals. If you are not sure where your paper fits please contact the program chair at programchair@nyspsa.com.

NYSPSA prohibits multiple paper submissions. If you are proposing a paper, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words. The abstract should include paper topic or research question, approach or methods, and preliminary findings.

NYSPSA enthusiastically welcomes proposals from international participants. Please note: NYSPSA does NOT provide financial support for remote international participants in the way of waived or reduced membership and conference fees. NYSPSA can provide to foreign nationals a formal confirmation of acceptance on its letterhead.

We also have a very limited number of panels for undergraduate students. Undergraduate panels are separate from other panels and will only be comprised of undergraduate students. Undergraduate students MUST submit their proposal to the undergraduate section. All undergraduates submitting a paper MUST have a faculty sponsor. Please review the guidelines for undergraduate proposals at https://www.nyspsa.org/undergraduate_paper_submission_and_evaluation_guidelines. You can also select “Conference” on the top navigation bar of our homepage and select “Undergraduate Paper Submission and Evaluation Guidelines” from the menu.

If you are proposing a full panel please note that individual papers must be accepted (that is, we will require information on the individual papers before a panel proposal can be accepted). Additionally, all proposed panels must have a minimum of three papers and a maximum of five.

In order to submit a proposal please visit our website https://www.nyspsa.org/ and select the “Abstract Submission” link on the top navigation bar or in the middle of the homepage. NYSPSA offers a Best Paper award with cash prizes. Visit our website for more information.
