Conference Theme

We all have intellectual blind spots, those issues or topics where our view is obstructed from seeing clearly. In these spaces, we are literally blind to what is happening and as a result, unable to gather information to change our point of view.

This conference aims to uncover, explore, and address these blinds spots by addressing question such as: What intellectual blind spots exist for public administration and our broader system of governance? On what topics is our view obstructed? Where are voices hushed or silenced? Whose voices are hushed or silenced?

The 2018 NECoPA host is the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore, a diverse campus in an urban environment with a history of addressing critical issues in our academic programs and research.
