APSA is accepting submissions for its Election Reflection Series. Election reflections are scholarly reflections, original research notes, and classroom exercises that shed light upon political behavior, public opinion and the 2018 Campaign and Election season. We are especially interested in featuring content that addresses the political behavior and public opinion of individuals from the following groups: underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, first-generation Americans, Indigenous communities, and the LGBT community. Submissions can address the 2018 local, state, or national campaigns and elections. Deadline for submissions: November 15, 2018.
To submit an 2018 Election reflection, use the online submission form
and upload a response to one or two of the following questions (1000 words or less).
1. Tell us about an original research project, article, or finding that you are working on, which sheds light upon political behavior and/or public opinion and the 2018 Campaign and Election.
2. Tell us about how you have incorporated themes relevant to diversity, inclusion, equity, or representation and the 2018 campaign and election into your political science teaching, research and/or service?
3. What group(s) of the electorate does your research focus on and what policy issue(s) proved to be salient to them in the 2018 Campaigns and Elections?
4. What role can/does political science research play in helping to make sense of the 2018 Campaigns and Elections?
APSA will share selected submissions online in the weeks following the 2018 Elections. Please email any questions about this call to [email protected]
