The 2024 conference will meet in-person once again and offers an opportunity to expand our reach as a discipline beyond traditional silos. With this in mind, this year’s theme is Approaches, Knowledges, and Methods for the World of Tomorrow. The theme opens news avenues for investigation in the field of political science that extend beyond rigid disciplinary boundaries. From Indigenous methodologies to innovative ethnographic approaches and from classical political theories to cutting-edge experimental approaches, a theme of Approaches, Knowledges, and Methods for the World of Tomorrow invites submissions that pushes us to rethink how we envision a more sustainable, equitable, and just world.
