It's that time again

We are delighted to announce that the Prairie Political Science Association will be holding its 15th Annual Meeting from Friday late-afternoon to Sunday at noon, September 20–22, 2024. The Conference will be held at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, Alberta, Canada, located in Treaty 7 Territory, traditional lands of the Stoney Nakoda, Blackfoot, and Tsuut’ina Nations.

The 2024 PPSA Conference will again be run in parallel with the Indigenous Relationality Workshop (IRW).

The PPSA Annual Meeting is famous for its collegial atmosphere, great food, and spectacular setting in the Canadian Rockies. The Banff Centre offers on-site accommodation. Conference fees include two dinners, two breakfasts, a lunch, day-long catering, and child care services.

Easy interaction with colleagues in the cafes and restaurants at the Banff Centre and in the Banff town site promotes the exchange of ideas. While maintaining a 2:1 Faculty to Graduate student participation ratio, grad students have found the PPSA a positive and supportive environment to present their research.

PPSA paper proposals from all fields of political science are welcome. The PPSA conference also encourages proposals for single panels or multi-panel workshops.

Deadlines for both paper and panel proposals is April 19, 2024.
