Call for Papers: Vocations of Realistic Political Theory

Vocations of Realistic Political Theory

Prof. Ferenc Hörcher (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Pázmány Péter Catholic University)
Dr. Gulsen Seven

We invite for this workshop, papers that focus on possible vocations of realist political theory having accepted the claim that it is not possible for political theory to promote grand recipes for guiding human actions. By aiming to offer consideration of a variety of realist perspectives, the panel hopes to contribute towards achieving a heightened awareness of the significance of political realism beyond but never independent of the realm of political action, in political theory. It also intends to encourage representatives of political realism to engage in scholarly dialogue with representatives of other theoretical inclinations regarding vocations of political theory.

We welcome submissions from a range of relevant fields, including, but not limited to, philosophy, political science, international relations, sociology, legal and political theory and so on. To submit a paper for the workshop please send a max. 500-word abstract to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 15th of May, 2017. Notification of acceptance will be given within a week after the deadline.

Papers for the workshop (no longer than 4000 words) will be pre-circulated. Full drafts will be due for circulation to workshop participants by 28th of August, 2017.
