All undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit papers for the 23rd annual Conference for Students of Political Science sponsored by the Illinois State University Department of Politics and Government. We welcome papers on any topic related to government and/or politics. All subfields and political perspectives are welcome. Panelists at the previous conferences included 750 students attending 100 colleges and universities.

If you are interested in participating in this exciting event, please complete the online proposal submission form or submit a cover letter, containing your contact information (including email address), your school, and the name of the faculty member with whom you are working, and a draft proposal for the paper (or the actual paper) by February 13, 2015. Final papers will be due by April 10, 2015.

Note that although only draft proposals need be submitted by February 13th for consideration, the length and completeness of the paper will be a consideration in its acceptance. Please only submit a proposal if you can indeed attend the conference. If you are seeking funding from your department, or if visa requirements require an invitation letter, please email Dr. Palmer.

If you would like to serve as a discussant on a panel, please send a letter stating your interest and main areas of scholarly knowledge. E-mail submissions are welcome. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email: or call us at (309) 438-8638.
