First Book Manuscript Workshop Applications for 2020 are Open

The Center for the Study of Liberal Democracy at the University of Wisconsin–Madison invites submissions for its annual First Book Manuscript Workshop.  The book selected will be the subject of a day-long conference at which each part of the manuscript will receive critical commentary from scholars with related areas of expertise.  The workshop will be held in Madison, Wisconsin during February or March, 2020, on a date that best accommodates the availability of participants.  The Center will cover the costs of travel, accommodation, and meals for the author of the accepted manuscript.  In addition to providing comments for each part of the book, the Center will also sponsor an invited keynote discussant.

Submissions from political theory and political philosophy are welcome. Priority will be given to manuscripts that engage meaningfully with topics integral to the mission of the Center.

To be considered, submissions must be received by November 15, 2019.   For information on how to submit a manuscript package please visit the First Book Manuscript Workshop web page.
