5Oth ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE
FEBRUARY 26-FEBRUARY 28, 2017
 
ISLA GRAND BEACH RESORT
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, TEXAS

 
In 1967, the burgeoning discontent of many political scientists culminated in the establishment of the Caucus for a New Political Science (CNPS).  The Caucus includes political scientists of many diverse viewpoints, but it is united methodologically by a critique of extreme behavioralism and by the idea that political science should abandon the myth of a value-free science.
 
Since  the founding of CNPS 50 years ago, political scientists have authored numerous commentaries on the tragedy of political science, the crisis in political science, the flight from reality in political science, and the end of political science. The 50th Anniversary Conference of the Caucus for a New Political Science will provide an ideologically and methodologically diverse platform for advancing a new critical political science that fundamentally redefines the purposes, categories, and politics of political science.

The mission of CNPS is to make the study of politics relevant to the struggle for a better world

 ​TOWARD A CRITICAL POLITICAL SCIENCE

The Conference organizers are seeking paper and panel proposals in the following broad areas:
 
Capitalism & Globalization
 
The State & Political Power
Class & Class Conflict
Race & Ethnicity
Gender & Sexuality
 
Political Ecology & the Environment
Social Movements & Protest
 
Ideology & Culture
 
Pedagogy, Politics, & the Profession of Political Science
 
We have intentionally left these categories undefined, because the purpose of the conference is to participate in an extended process of redefining political science as a  critical political science. We welcome paper and panel proposals that substantively and methodologically challenge mainstream political science as it is represented in the official political science association journals with scholarship that extends the intellectual and professional frontiers of the political science discipline through work that is critically engaged, action-oriented, intersectional, interdisciplinary, or international in its focus.
