Association (WPSA)
2023 WPSA Meeting
The 2023 meeting of the Western Political Science As-
sociation will be held at the Hyatt Regency in San
Francisco, California, from April 6 to 8. Jason Casellas,
University of Houston, is serving as program chair for this
meeting. Melissa Michelson, Menlo College, is chairing
the Local Arrangements Committee. Information re-
garding the conference, its theme, and the list of section

org. In addition to the main program, several workshops
are being organized for Wednesday, April 5. There will
also be several mini-conferences held during the meeting.

can also be found on the website.
Proposals for the 2023 meeting are encouraged. The
deadline for submission of paper proposals/program
participation forms is 26 September 2022. The theme for
the 2023 meeting is Unity in the Midst of Disunity: The
Role of Political Science in Democracy.While proposals
are welcome on all topics in political science, the program
chair is encouraging proposals that enhance our under-
standing of the division which has impacted our political
discourse and the role that political scientists can play, as
individuals and as members of an association, to help f‌ind
ways to foster unity and coalescence around shared
principles. Scholars in all subf‌ields of the discipline are
welcome to submit proposals on subjects related to this
theme. Details about the conference, its theme, the call for
papers, and proposal instructions appear on the WPSA
The WPSA annual meeting not only offers the op-
portunity for traditional research presentations and
roundtable discussions, but also a place for interested
groups to schedule special events and workshops. In
addition, if you are part of a research community that is
interested in holding a meeting in the spring, we may be
able to accommodate your group by coordinating a
conference within the WPSA annual meeting. For in-
formation about these opportunities, please contact
