As host, I am pleased to announce that the School of Social Sciences at the University of Western Australia in Perth will host the 10th Australian International Political Economy Network workshop (AIPEN X) on 14-15 February 2019. We’re very excited to have Professor Nicola Phillips join us to deliver the workshop keynote. The AIPEN Richard Higgott prize for the best journal article in IPE by an Australia-based scholar will also be formally awarded during the workshop (if you haven’t yet nominated a paper, the deadline is 31 August 2018).
Registration: Registration is free of charge. To be included in the workshop program, please submit an individual abstract of 200 words or a panel proposal of four to five abstracts by 31 October 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Following conversations at AIPEN IX, please also send through ideas for innovative session formats or roundtable proposals. Colleagues are very welcome to attend the workshop without presenting a paper. The program will be finalised and circulated prior to the Christmas break.
Venue: The workshop will be held at the Crawley campus of the University of Western Australia, on the Swan River and 10 minutes drive from the Perth CBD. Further details will be circulated later in the year.
Workshop format: As in previous years, the workshop will be organised as a single stream.
Workshop dinner: The workshop dinner will be held on the evening of 14 February, sponsored by the School of Social Sciences and the Office of Research Enterprise.
PhD travel bursaries: We have a limited number of postgraduate bursaries of $500 each available for students travelling to Perth to present at the workshop, and these will be awarded on a competitive basis. If you wish to be considered for one of these, please indicate this in your submission.
Accommodation: Workshop attendees are responsible for organising their own accommodation. A list of recommended options will be circulated later in the year.
Finally, February is a wonderful time to visit Perth, and the workshop will coincide with both the Fringe Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival if you’re interested in extending your stay over the weekend.
We look forward to welcoming you to UWA in February!
