Western Political Science
Association (WPSA)
Not Too Late to Participate in the 2022
Meeting in San Francisco
Even though the deadline for paper proposals has
passed, there are still ways to participate actively in the
Western Political Science Associations annual
caucuses, subject-matter sections, or other groups
wishing to schedule sessions or workshops during the
WPSA conference and who have not already done so
should contact WPSA Conference and Membership
Coordinator, Julio Castilleja, as soon as possible at
In addition, if you are part of a research community that
is interested in holding a meeting in the spring, we may
still be able to accommodate your group by coordinating a
mini-conference within our conference. The association
does not charge for providing the space and support for
these mini-conferences, though the attendees are required
to register for the WPSA meeting. There is also the op-
portunity to host receptions, business meetings, and
special events at the annual conference. Finally, some
section chairs are likely to be looking for individuals
wanting to serve as discussants and panel chairs. Just write
them if you are interested; their contact information is
available on the associations website.
The 2023 meeting of the Western Political Science
Association 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. Marcela Garcia-Castanon, San Francisco State
University (SFSU), is chairing the Local Arrangements
Committee. Anthony Pahnke, SFSU, is also serving on
the committee. Information regarding the conference, its
theme, and the list of section chairs are available on the
WPSAwebsite: 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. Information on
these workshops and mini-conferences can also be found
on the website.
Pre-registration and hotel information is available now
on the WPSAwebsit e. It is possible to pre-register and pay
by credit card at this site:
Support the WPSA 75th Anniversary
Fundraising Campaign
As part of the WPSAs 75th Anniversary, the Association
launched a $100,000 fund-raising campaign to create a
travel endowment, which will provide much-needed
support to help graduate students and faculty attend the
annual meeting. The Association is continuing the cam-
paign until the 2023 conference. If you have not con-
tributed yet, please do so. Every year, the WPSA off‌ices
get request from graduate students and faculty who do not
have the funding to attend the annual meeting. This will
enable us to provide some support. Even small contri-
butions are appreciated! As of now, the Association has
raised $27,000. We are on our way, but need more of you
to help!
Donations to the Association can be made on a one-
time only basis or spread out over multiple months or
years. The WPSA is a 501(c)3 not-for-prof‌it organization;
as such, your contributions are fully tax-deductible, as
permitted by law. To make a donation, please visit the
WPSA website at:
