POLITSCI '15 / Call for Papers

Special Focus: Power and Resistance: Current Debates and Historical Background

POLITSCI '15 / 3rd International Political Science Conference will be held on December 11-12, 2015 in Istanbul. The conference will be brought to life by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center) and organized by BİLSAS (Science, Art, Sport Productions).

This year's conference will focus primarily on power and resistance. The means of formation of authoritarian power, potentialities of resistance to authoritarianism, social movements, dialectics of force and consent in the creation of power, and the means of ideological legitimization of government policies are among the themes to be tackled within the framework of the 2015 conference.

The conference aims to constitute a forum for prolific exchanges between different theoretical perspectives, interests and concerns prevalent within political science. We welcome papers based on original research in politics. We also encourage submission of abstracts derived from papers in other disciplines, including history, philosophy, and economics, hoping to engage in inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary dialogues that will add to our understanding of what political theory may mean for people today living in rapidly changing national, social and cultural contexts.

Keynote Speakers:

We proudly announce that outstanding professor António Costa Pinto and Ergin Yıldızoğlu will give their keynote speeches on the first day of the event.
