Call for papers: Graduate Conference on the Politics of Representation

Politics and International Relations 24 March 2016

Centre for the Study of Democracy

The Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Westminster is pleased to host the first event of the recently founded New Perspectives Series.

New Perspectives is an initiative by the DPIR graduate community that aims at promoting critical and cutting-edge research among doctoral- and early-career-researchers.

The first installment of the series engages with (and challenges) the idea of ‘representation’, a prolific and widely utilised concept in political and international analysis with often take-for-granted implications.

The deadline for abstract submissions is Saturday 10 April 2016.

Find out about the themes and guidelines for submissions on the event page.

Visit the New Perspectives Series website for further information.
