On the day before the start of the annual meeting, the WPSA reserves a few meeting rooms at the conference hotel for affiliated groups to hold workshops in which they share research and address issues of common interest. Four groups have traditionally held workshops on these Wednesdays:

1) Environmental Political Theory:

Workshop details coming soon.

2) Feminist Theory:

Workshop details coming soon.

3) Latina/o Politics:

Workshop details coming soon.

4) Interpretive Methods:

In preparation for the upcoming Interpretive Methods and Methodologies (IMM) Pre-Conference Workshop at the Western Political Science Association meeting in Vancouver, BC (March 2024), IMM Workshop co-organizers Farah Godrej and Sarah Marusek are curating a bibliography of recent work that contributes to the field of interpretive methods and methodologies.

If you would like to share information about your book that has been published in the last two years (2022 and 2023), please submit a 100-word description of the book, along with the book's bibliographical citation, to both Farah ( and Sarah ( by January 15, 2024 for consideration.

We envision this workshop will take place on Wednesday, March 27, 2024 from 2-5 (with beverages and snacks included) and to be conducted in an in-person format. While we value the inclusivity that Zoom provides, we also value the spontaneous engagement that seems best to happen in conversations that take place in real time and in real space.

If you are part of a research community that is interested in holding a workshop or special meeting in the spring, we may be able to accommodate your group. We have some workshop space available on Wednesday, March 27. We also work with groups that are interested in organizing a mini-conference within the WPSA annual meeting. For information about these opportunities, please contact Julio Castilleja, WPSA Conference Coordinator, at

Information about the workshops that are scheduled for the 2024 meeting will be posted later this year.
