Annual Meeting 2024
We are pleased to announce that the 26th Annual Meeting of the GPPSA in 2024 will be held at Wichita State University on November 1st and 2nd.
Our conference welcomes presentations and participation from all areas of political science and related disciplines from collegiate, post-collegiate, and professional scholarship. Paper proposals for those interested in presenting are due by September 15, 2024. Please see the proposal submission link for more information on submitting an abstract.
Friday will include research panels and the annual business meeting. It is geared towards individuals wishing to share their research about politics.
GPPSA extends a special invitation to graduate and undergraduate students. The conference is small, friendly, inexpensive, and attracts generalists--it's a great forum for feedback on research posters, prospectuses, grant proposals, theses, etc. We offer discounted registration and prize categories for graduate and undergraduate students.
Saturday will feature a series of workshops focused on the teaching of political science. All conference attendees are welcome to join, but we also offer a registration option for those interested solely in the Saturday pedagogy workshops.
Registration for the conference is also handled on this site - see the registration page for more information. Membership fees for the association are included in your conference registration. We offer a rate schedule based on academic status (faculty, graduate or undergraduate student, professional).
