Teaching Politics in an Era of Populism – International Teaching and Learning Conference 2019


We are now accepting proposals for the International Teaching and Learning Conference 2019. Taking place in Brighton, 17-19 June 2019, the conference is a collaboration between the PSA, BISA , APSA and ECPR. 


This conference aims to provide a forum in which political science educators from different countries and contexts can come together to explore these challenges and share their experiences and teaching practices. We welcome contributions which explore the challenges faced in national, international, or comparative contexts. We also welcome different approaches to understanding populism and the challenges that it may present to political science educators in different contexts.


The rise of populism across North America and Europe in recent decades presents a range of challenges to the teaching of political science and international relations in the universities and colleges. At one level, our curriculum must develop to cover new forms of political activity, the rise of new parties and movements, and new forms of political and government behaviour. But the challenges go beyond simply the content of what we teach. In a political culture in which expertise and established standards of evidence are devalued, political science educators can find themselves portrayed as mere peddlers of opinion and ideology. 


We welcome proposals for the following categories: 



All conference submissions should be sent to psateach@psa.ac.uk by 19th November 2018
