Call for papers: Political Networks Conference and Workshops

TDA is co-sponsoring the 10th Annual Political Networks Conference and Workshops, which Ohio State will host June 14-17.

The program chairs and host committee are pleased to invite proposal submissions for the conference.

From the chairs and committee:

The political networks conference has played a key role in stimulating research and developing our field, increasing the role of network data and concepts in the study of politics and policy.

We seek proposals for individual papers, posters, and organized panels that engage in rigorous theoretical and/or empirical research on the application of networks to politics and policy. We also welcome contributions that develop novel methodological approaches to the analysis of political networks. We aim to have a conference that represents research from a broad range of subfields and methodologies, and submissions are encouraged from scholars in political science or related disciplines including sociology, communications, psychology, public policy, and computer science. Methodological approaches may include, but are not limited to, statistical studies, laboratory and field experiments, ethnography, formal models, and computer simulations. Topics presented at past conferences include investigations of individual political behavior; interactions of individuals with traditional and online media; activist participation in interest groups, social movements, and political parties; interest group and corporate relationships with government agencies and officials; relationships within and among local, state, and federal government agencies; legislator communications and alliance formation; the political implications of international trade flows; ethnic cooperation and conflict; international alliances, organizations, and conflict; and a wide range of other political topics.

To submit an individual paper or poster proposal, submit a title and abstract of no more than 250 words on the conference website. Three-paper panels may also be submitted; to do so, note the title of the panel in each paper submission.

For full consideration, proposals must be submitted by February 15; decisions regarding proposals will be announced by March 15.
