“Can we rely on international organizations?”
This is a reminder that the Department of Political Science at the University of Waterloo is pleased to announce that the annual Graduate Student Conference will take place on March 8, 2019 at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. The conference will be centered on the theme “Can we rely on international organizations?” We are seeking research papers that explore the role international organizations play in the global sphere and analyzing their effectiveness – or arguably lack thereof. We are very excited to announce that our Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Aaron Ettinger from the Department of Political Science at the University of Waterloo.
Please submit your research for consideration by emailing a brief proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should include the title of the paper, as well as a 300-word abstract outlining the thesis or topic to be discussed, a brief discussion of the methodology used to pursue the topic, and its significance in relation to existing literature. The deadline to submit abstracts has been extended to February 1st, 2019 at 11:59PM. Selected applicants will be emailed the next week.
It is encouraged that presenters complete their paper before the Conference date, but not mandatory. However, if you are interested in being featured in the Political Science Grad Journal Inquiry & Insight, final papers need to be submitted to the PSGSA at a later date (TBA).

2019 Feminist Summer Reading School
Application deadline: February 20, 2019
Date/location: Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, June 17-22, 2019
Theme: Philosophy and Bodies
We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual Feminist Summer Reading School, hosted this year by Cornell University. The 2019 Summer School theme is “Philosophy and Bodies” and will be held June 17-22, 2019. Spanning from early understandings of mind-body relations to current ethical and political issues surrounding the body, the Summer Reading School will delve into topics such as disability, gender, weight/fatness, sex, confinement/imprisonment, race, and so on.
The Summer School is uniquely structured insofar as all the reading is done at the Summer School and not beforehand. Students disperse to read either in small groups or individually and then reconvene for a discussion session. The Summer School strives to create a collaborative and diverse environment that facilitates meaningful learning among students with varying philosophical strengths and life experiences. In addition, invited scholars will offer workshops and lectures on a topic related to feminism and the body.
There is no participation fee. We strongly encourage women and other gender-minorities to apply. Comfortable knowledge of philosophy is required, but expertise in the main topic is not. Applicants should therefore be advanced undergraduates in the final years of their philosophy degree, masters students in philosophy, or philosophy Ph.D. students. Applications opened January 1st, 2019 and close on February 20th, 2019.
