Call for Proposals/Participation
Southern Political Science Association, Political Networks Section
Southern Political Science Association
InterContinental Hotel, New Orleans, LA
January 5-8, 2011
DEADLINE for proposals: August 9, 2010
The Political Networks Section of SPSA invites proposals that aim to explain the role of relationships between actors, agencies, and institutions in all aspects of politics. We are particularly interested in research that challenges fundamental assertions about independence in order to gain new insight on political processes and behavior. We are open to work that explores old substantive questions through the lens of political networks, as well as development of cutting edge methods and topics based on the concepts of interdependence. Substantive areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, the study of economic and political relationships between nations, policy implementation networks, the impact of political organizations at home and abroad, and the consequences of social discussion on political choices. Proposals that focus on the unique contribution of political science to network analysis, and vice versa, are also welcome.
Proposal submission instructions: All paper proposals must be submitted via All Academic (http://convention3.allacademic.com/one/spsa/spsa11/index.php?cmd=spsa11&id=). You will need to create a login id/password. Once there, choose “Political Networks” to submit your paper/discussant/chair proposal. Paper proposals should be informative abstracts no longer than 250 words.
