2020 MPSA Conference

Annual Conference

After the cancellation of the 2020 conference, MPSA created a new hub for sharing research and getting feedback: The Political Science Research Exchange. While it won’t fill the place of a conference, it will help fill the gap for members.

The deadline for research submissions was Monday, May 11. Thank you to all who are participating by submitting to our 2020 Conference Repository of Papers and Slidecast presentations, and to those who have volunteered to serve as a discussant. Discussants and research are currently being matched and participants will be contacted as soon as matches are made and papers are made available.

Professional Development Sessions

The professional development of our members is another way MPSA will be giving back during this challenging time. Although we unfortunately couldn’t meet in-person this year, the MPSA is planning to facilitate and record a dozen virtual roundtables and professional development sessions. Each session or roundtable will be set up as a webinar and will be recorded and available on the MPSA website for future reference. More information will be available soon on session topics, scheduling and a way to sign up so our members can still experience these professional development sessions in a virtual format.

We Are In This Together

The MPSA stands strong with its purposes to promote the professional study and teaching of political science, to facilitate communications between those engaged in such study, and to develop standards for and encourage research in theoretical and practical political problems.

We appreciate your consideration of participating in the Political Science Research Exchange to help advance scholarship in all areas of political science, especially during these challenging times.
