The Winds of Change: New Challenges and Opportunities for Teaching Politics and IR

The 9th Annual Learning and Teaching Conference is hosted by the Learning and Teaching Working Groups of BISA and the PSA. It will focus on new challenges and opportunities for students and teachers of Politics and IR. The conference is supported by BISA, the PSA, OUP, the journal Politics, and Newcastle University. The event will take place from 13-14 September 2016 at Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne.

The organising committee are particularly keen to explore the impact of, and our responses to, three types of changes:
– The major political and geopolitical changes that we are witnessing at the UK, European and global levels;
– Technological changes;
