Subject: First Annual Toronto Political Development Workshop



We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the first annual Toronto Political Development Workshop, to be held at the School of Public Policy and Governance, University of Toronto, October 14-15, 2017.


Political development is an important and growing field, both in the American and other contexts.  The objective of our workshop is to provide a venue for the detailed and in-depth discussion of new work in political development, with a particular focus on Canada, Britain, and the United States. 


The workshop will be limited to a small number of papers (about 10) with extended discussion of each paper (about an hour).  Papers will be made available to all participants prior to the workshop, allowing for more rigorous discussion.


The workshop will also feature a keynote presentation by Desmond King (University of Oxford).


The workshop has no registration fee.  A light breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days, as well as a workshop dinner on Saturday evening.


To submit a proposal and to learn more about the emerging American, British, and Canadian Political Development approach, please visit https://www.peterjohnloewen.com/political-development-workshop.


The deadline for proposals is May 31.


For more information about the workshop, please contact Peter Loewen (peter.loewen@utoronto.ca), Jack Lucas (jack.lucas@ucalgary.ca), or Rob Vipond (robert.vipond@utoronto.ca).
