Call for Papers: Politics and Anti-Politics


BCPSA 2020 aims to engage in an academic debate addressing such questions such as:

- Is this going to cause a radical shift in the way we think about our politics?

- Is the anti-politics empowering people and is good for democracy?


A broad interpretation of the conference theme is encouraged, focusing on the changing nature of politics – domestically, regionally and internationally – in the world.


Proposals on other political science topics are also welcome.


Participation is open to all political scientists and other scholars who are interested in current political issues. Recognizing the role of the younger generation in shaping our future, conference organizers particularly welcome proposals from both graduate and advanced undergraduate students, as well as mixed student-faculty panels.


Please send a 250-300-word summary of your paper or panel proposal outlining the argument, the method of analysis and the significance of the topic to:

Dr. Ayla Kilic:  AKilic@okanagan.bc.ca


Dr. Linda Elmose: LElmose@okanagan.bc.ca


Proposals should be received by March 21, 2020 and successful applicants will be informed of their acceptance by March 31, 2020.


Please note that no financial assistance can be provided to support travel expenses and accommodation.
