The MPSA will organize a series of roundtables at the conference that discuss aspects of the academic profession.

If you want to serve on a roundtable, please volunteer using this form and the program committee will try to put together a roundtable with 3-5 speakers on the same topic. If you want to submit an entire roundtable (3-5 speakers on a topic), please use the standard roundtable submission form on the MPSA website.

Roundtables will be digitally recorded for future release on the MPSA website. All sessions are open to anyone who is registered for the conference.

Participation in a roundtable does NOT count against your limit of being on two sessions at the MPSA conference.

If you have problems completing this form, please contact us at conf@mpsanet.org.
