The MPSA conference book is gigantic and rather difficult to plan from. For the most part, I had to look for academic names I knew and track panels by author instead of by subject. Just by chance, I went to the price room a couple hours before the panel I chaired. For the most part, I enjoyed listening to some very theoretical discussions of specific authors who have made contributions to modern political thought. Initially, I caught the tail end of a presentation by Luke Philip Plotica. Luke’s paced and deliberate style reminded me of what it was like to listen to an accomplished high school or college debater competing at a high level. The discussant for the panel focused in like a laser proper citation when discussing relationships between theorists.
