MPSA Conference, April 2-5, 2009, Chicago. Proposal Deadline is October 10, 2008.
Ask your favorite political scientist what the biggest political science conference is, and she'll tell you it's the American Political Science Association. Ask her what the best political science conference is and she'll tell you it's the Midwest Political Science Association meeting, held every April in the beautiful Palmer House in Chicago.
(Keep reading even if you're not a political scientist.)
The Midwest Political Science Association, like most academic associations, charges higher conference registration rates for nonmembers than to members. Hoping to continue to increase attendance by people outside of political science and related fields at its annual meeting, the Association will begin charging registrants who 1) have academic appointments outside of political science or related fields (policy, public administration and political economy) and 2) do not have a PhD in political science or the same related fields, conference registration rates equal to member registration rates.
In addition, the Association grants, on request, a substantial number of conference registration waivers for first time participants who are outside the discipline.
The call for papers for the 2009 meeting, due October 10, is at http://www.mpsanet.org/~mpsa/index.html.
Hope to see you in Chicago.
Jeff Segal, President
Midwest Political Science Association
