The MANCEPT Workshops is an annual conference in political theory, organised under the auspices of the Manchester Centre for Political Theory. This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday 9th of September to Friday 11th September at the Arthur Lewis Building, University of Manchester. The conference offers academics an opportunity to come together in a series of workshops so as to develop specialised work and engage in lively philosophical discussion. Attracting scholars throughout the world, the conference is now established as a leading international forum dedicated to the development of research in all subfields of political theory.
We are now accepting applications for workshop convenors. Applications are made by submitting a short (500 word) abstract describing the subject of your workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for workshop proposals is 2nd March 2020. If accepted, convenors then put out their own call for papers for the panel based on their proposal.
Registration fees for academics would be charged at £240.* Postgraduate students, unaffiliated researchers, and retirees will be charged a lower concessionary rate of £130.
Successful convenors and panellists will be eligible to apply for a bursary consisting in a fee waiver. Bursaries will be awarded on the basis of need. Further details and instructions on how to apply will be released in due course.
If you are interested in convening a workshop or require any further information please e-mail the workshop organisers Jeannine Bringmann, Giacomo Floris, Vittorio Gerosa and Molly Powell at:
* For the first time in many years, we have taken the decision to slightly increase the registration fees for academics for this year’s workshops from £230 to £240. In the face of rising costs, this is necessary not only to ensure the long term sustainability of the workshops but also so that we can continue paying the graduate organisers a fair rate for their work, and distributing a significant number of bursaries to those who would find it difficult or impossible to attend otherwise. The lower concessionary fee rate for postgraduate students, unaffiliated researchers and retirees will remain the same at £130. While we hope that you support this decision, we welcome any feedback or comments you have on this or any other aspects of our processes and the workshops in general, and as ever would be more than happy to hear your thoughts at email@example.com
