POLITSCI '15 / III. Political Science Conference will be held on October 15-16, 2015 at Istanbul University. The conference is coordinated by Istanbul University's Chair of Political Science and DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center) and organized by BİLSAS (Science, Art, Sport Productions).
The main objective of the Political Science Conference is to provide a platform for academic discussions on politics by taking into account both "theory" and "praxis". This year's conference will focus primarily on neoliberalism and its impact on various aspects of the social body: forms of state, social classes, accumulation and political regimes, rationalities of government, social resistance movements, gender regimes etc. The conference will also focus on the questions of contemporary political theory and problematize political science as a discipline. The conference aims to constitute a forum for prolific exchanges between different theoretical perspectives, interests and concerns prevalent within political science.
