About the 2021 APSA Annual Meeting Format
We are pleased to announce that APSA’s 2021 Annual Meeting will return to an in-person meeting in Seattle, while also offering a virtual option. We are pleased to create a plan for a meeting that is safe, inclusive, and accessible for the entire discipline during this challenging time. Adapting the meeting format model will bring together political scientists in an innovative way and allow for attendees to pick a format that works best for their circumstances. It is more important than ever to bring together the discipline to share the latest research and scholarship, provide opportunities for scholars to learn about the job market, and be able to network with one another. See schedule details and more information here.
