On April 18, 2020, Walsh University will host a conference opened to undergraduate students interested in politics, international relations, political economy, political philosophy, or other subjects with political overtones. We invite all interested students to present* a paper or a poster in any subfield of the discipline. In addition, we offer sessions on “What to Expect in Graduate School” and “What to Expect in Law School.” Come join us and:

  • Hear what your peers are thinking on the same issues
  • Meet other politically-minded students
  • Build your resume or graduate school application credentials
  • Receive feedback on research ideas and projects
  • Strengthen your presentation skills and confidence

Lodging is provided for presenting students who need it.

Registration for a presenter is due by April 1, 2020. Papers are due by April 10, 2020.

Proposals should include a provisional title, an abstract of your paper/poster, your name, and how to contact you – including an email address. You are encouraged to submit your proposal and registration information online here.

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Koop Berry at kberry@walsh.edu.

primary findings.
