New Online Seminar Series

The ECPR Standing Group in Political Theory is launching a new monthly online seminar series.

Starting September 30, on the last Wednesday of each month at 1600 UK time we will have one member of the ECPR Standing Group (or a guest) deliver a talk via Zoom, open to all ECPR members, with a moderated discussion afterwards. Seminars will be one hour long. We hope this provides a way for all members to engage with political theory throughout the year, no matter where they are based.

Access to semints is via the ECPR Portal: Registration is free but requires your MyEcpr credentials for logging it. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to join the seminar. One registration is enough for the entire seminar series.
