2018 Annual Conference

The Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association is holding its 2018 annual conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland from October 12 to 14, 2018.
This year’s conference will focus on the theme of Margins, Identity and Borders: Re-Centering Politics to foster discussion on contentious issues of race, social justice and conflict in a period of resurgent nationalism and divisive politics.
Participation is open to all political scientists and others with a scholarly interest in politics, including those from outside of Canada. Proposals are no longer being accepted, but registration is now open and we welcome all who are interested in attending to join us.
For more information, please email the conference organizers (Isabelle Côté and Amanda Bittner), at appsatherock2018@gmail.com
St. John’s, on Canada’s east coast, is Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital and largest city, and sometimes heralded as the oldest city in North America, with a rich cultural and “foodie” scene. October is locally thought of as one of the best times to visit. The airport, which offers frequent service to all major Canadian centres and connections to Europe and the United States, is located in close proximity to conference hotels and the meeting space at Memorial University.
