As we gear up for the 51st NPSA conference, we are excited by the large number of paper and panel submissions we have received.  Registration is already open and the Conference Program is available. All scheduling information will be posted shortly on our submission site AllAcademic. Anyone whose proposal was accepted or who volunteered to participate as a chair or discussant will receive an email asking to confirm his/her participation.

The international participants should initiate their application for a visa as soon as possible if they need one.  If they want an NPSA’s official letter of participation, they should be filling out the letter form available here.

Guided Walking Tour of Philadelphia

We have arranged a private session of The Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia since that city is best seen by foot. This is a great way to explore America’s Birthplace. The Constitutional is a 75 minute, 1.25-mile outdoor walking journey which provides an overview of the Independence National Historical Park area and a visit to more than 20 of the most historic sites, including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, The First Bank of the United States and more.  The cost for the tour is $20.00.  You can pay for it online when you register for the conference. The tour will be at 6-7:15 PM on Saturday, November 9, 2019.
