We are delighted to confirm that registration is now live for the PSA 2019 Convention. Please follow the link below to the University of Manchester eStore page, where you can register and pay for convention attendance.

How much? As a reminder, the registration fee for PSA 2019 will be as follows:

3-day registration fees: 
Band C (incl. students/unwaged) £60 / Band B £75 / Band A £120

1-day registration fees:
Band C (incl. students/unwaged) £40 / Band B £45 / Band A £65

Please note that we cannot make any further reductions to these rates, which already represent a significant reduction/saving, across all bands, from the PSA’s 2017 convention in London. To see which countries are in each band, please visit

What’s included? The fee covers full attendance for all activities, either as a 1-day or 3-day purchase, including keynotes, panels, tea/coffee refreshments and lunch, as well as the delegate pack. Attendees on 11 September are also invited to our opening night wine reception, sponsored by Edinburgh University Press.

Membership. A reminder that speakers presenting at the convention are also required to be members of the PSA itself. If you are not already a member, please go to

Convention Dinner? The registration page also offers an additional option to attend the Convention Dinner on Thursday 12 September. I warmly encourage everyone to join us for this, as it will be a good opportunity to be together and carry on the conversations in a more informal setting. The restaurant is on campus and only ~3 minutes walk from our main venue. The dinner will include a 3-course meal and drink.

ProgrammePlease also find an updated copy [as of 2 August] of our Programme here.
