Toronto Political Development Workshop

We are delighted to announce a call for papers for the fifth annual Toronto Political Development Workshop, to be held at the University of Toronto, Friday May 12 and Saturday May 13, 2023. The workshop will feature a keynote presentation by Stephen Skowronek (Yale).

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 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 rigorous and in-depth discussion.

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

The deadline for submissions is February 20, 2023. Please click here to submit a proposal for the workshop.
