The Center for the Study of Liberal Democracy at the University of Wisconsin–Madison invites submissions for its annual First Book Manuscript Workshop. The manuscript selected will be the subject of a day-long conference at which each chapter will receive critical commentary from scholars with related areas of expertise. The workshop will be held in Madison, Wisconsin during the winter/spring of 2024, 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 selected 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.
The 2023 Workshop, featuring Dr. Luke Foster, will be held at The University of Notre Dame. The tentative schedule can be found here.
