Call for Papers

Call for Papers and Panels

The Annual Conference of the Political Studies Association of Ireland will take place in the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth, and Maynooth University over the weekend of the 18th-20th October 2019. We invite panel and paper proposals from all areas of the discipline, with particular emphasis on, but not necessarily confined to, the politics of the island of Ireland.

Abstract submissions

In the case of single paper proposals, please submit an abstract to by Thursday 20th June 2019. This abstract should be submitted as a word attachment and include:

– Paper title,
– Author name(s) and affiliation(s),
– Professional status (PhD student, postdoc, lecturer, professor, independent scholar etc.),
– Summary of the proposed paper (no more than 200 words).

Panel proposals

Colleagues are encouraged to submit complete panels (minimum of three papers, maximum of five) on a given subject or theme. This can be done by bringing together other potential panellists yourself, or by contacting the appropriate PSAI specialist group (

The conference organisers reserve the final say in the allocation of accepted papers to panels. While multiple abstract submissions are permitted, in general, multiple papers by the same author(s) are discouraged.

All panel proposals must include abstracts and contact details for each paper as above. Proposals should be sent to by 20th June. Panel organisers are asked to ensure that appropriate attention is given to balance in respect of gender and stage in career development.


Notification of paper and panel acceptances will be given in early July and conference registration will open. Abstracts will be published on the conference website and in the conference programme.
