Undergraduate Project to be Presented at PSA Conference

Congratulations, Maria Pabolaza Lacambra, on your paper acceptance!

Maria Pabolaza Lacambra's paper, pertaining to research undertaken for her recent Undergraduate Project, has been accepted for the 2017 Political Studies Association Undergraduate Conference in Glasgow in April. Her Undergraduate Project was supervised by Hugo Gorringe.

The PSA's 2017 annual conference for undergraduate students will take place in Glasgow on the campus of Strathclyde University. This event provides a great opportunity for Politics students and those in related subjects who are studying for undergraduate degrees to come together and share their research with like-minded peers. This one day event will take place on 13 April 2017.

Undergraduate Politics students from across the UK and abroad are invited to submit papers for panels taking place during the course of that day. The theme of this year's conference is Politics in Interesting Times, which mirrors the main PSA Conference, taking place in Glasgow over preceding days. 

Potential themes for exploration by student panellists include Brexit and the future of the EU; the US Presidential Elections and the rise of Donald Trump; populist politics; the limits of globalisation; the continuing repercussions of the 2008 financial crisis, climate change and other topics. We welcome papers from different sub disciplines within Politics including comparative politics; political philosophy; and IR, as well as papers from different methodological traditions.
