Call for Papers

 

Myriad changes in politics, policy and government have occurred in Alabama and the nation over the past 40 years, chronicled over the life of the Alabama Political Science Association. This year’s meeting highlights the research that speaks to the unique position of Alabama, its past, its present and its future. Panels at the meeting will cover a range of topics from policy (including, but not limited to health, social policy, foreign and military policy), to politics-as-usual (democracy, American institutions, voting and elections, comparative politics and international relations), political theory, and closer-to-home issues (Alabama politics, immigration issues, publications and graduate student development).

 

We invite abstracts (up to 250 words) for individual papers and panel submissions. To be considered, abstracts should be received no later than midnight on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. 

Abstracts can be submitted by e-mail to alapsa@auburn.edu.

 

Individual submissions should include: name, title (or year in graduate or undergraduate school), professional affiliation, email and postal address for all paper authors and co-authors; paper title; and an abstract up to 250 words.
