PA Theory 2019 at UC–Denver

The Public Administration Theory Network and the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver are pleased to welcome you to Denver, Colorado for the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Public Administration Theory Network.

The conference will be held at the historic Warwick Hotel in downtown Denver from May 30th until June 2nd. Our theme Post Truth in the Public Realm explores the contentious current environment of government and administration. We invite papers that explore the variety of critiques that give shape to post-truth rhetoric, to explorations of how post-truth ideas in government came to be, and to where the convoluted discourse of post-truth politics leads our concerns of administration and government.

The Call for Papers is open, and submissions are due on November 15, 2018. We also welcome papers that explore other themes in critical, constructivist, and theoretical Public Administration.
