About IPSA

Thank you for your interest in the Illinois Political Science Association.

We are passionate about providing a space for Illinois political scientists to connect with each other, and present and refine their research and ideas on government, politics and policies, through hosting an annual conference as well as publishing The Illinois Political Science Review.

Over the years, the IPSA also has embraced the value of interdisciplinary collaboration and communication, and to that end it has reached out to faculty and students from disciplines such as Sociology, Anthropology and History.
