In Conferences, News by Kim Conger

Call for Proposals
Realignment, Transition, and Disruption:
Politics in the 21st Century
Christians in Political Science Conference, 2018
Covenant College
June 7-9, 2018

Brexit; regime transitions in the Middle East; the election of Donald Trump; insurgencies in both major American Parties. Politics in the 21st century, both internationally and domestically, seem to be undergoing an historic time of change. Is this time an historic pivot point in politics or merely a brief episodic “bump in the road”? Are such developments signaling a significant political realignment, a time of transition to a new order, or are they simply disruptions of a larger existing order? Given the political chaos and disruption of the last several years, how should political science think about politics in the 21st Century?

Papers or Panels are welcome on a wide range of topics in any of the subfields such as, International, Comparative, or American politics, Political Theory, Public policy; as well as interdisciplinary efforts in political History, economics, and political theology. Individual papers, group panels, roundtables, will all be considered. Submissions should have a title and a brief description anywhere from 100-500 words.

Undergraduate papers welcome! Special panels to be organized for undergraduates on the 7th,.

Deadline for submissions is February 21, 2018. Please email us at with your proposals. Put “Proposal CPS 2018” in the subject line.
