(University of Calgary)Abstract: Taking David McGrane and Neil Hibbert’s edited collection, Applied Political Theory and Canadian Politics (University of Toronto Press) as a starting point, this roundtable will begin by exploring the definition of “applied political theory.” The participants, two Canadianists and two political theorists, will then consider the benefits and drawbacks of using an applied political theory approach in their respective fields of study. The roundtable will be of interest to those wanting to use the analytical tools of political theory to understand real world political events and practices in their own research.
Lunch will be provided.
