“In the United States, democratic institutions are generally thought of as bulwarks against manifold threats, both inside and outside of the American polity. Indeed, the assumption has been that our nation’s constitution is solid and prescient enough to thwart—or at the least contain—the more authoritarian impulses of citizens and elected officials alike. Donald J. Trump’s election to the presidency of the United States in 2016 has dramatically called into question this working assumption. Yet President Trump’s ascendance to executive power is more epilogue than prologue to the inclusivity of American democracy. In the decades leading to Trump’s momentous election, there were already countless signs of democracy displaying illiberal tendencies in the United States.” [more]

Call for Papers: NYU CESS Experimental Political Science Annual Conference

From Gwyneth McClendon:

Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce the 13th Annual NYU-CESS Conference on Experimental Political Science, which will be held on Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th, 2020 at New York University.

We are now accepting paper proposals, as well as proposals for a graduate student poster session. We welcome the participation of field researchers, lab and survey researchers and those who analyze natural experiments, political psychologists, political economists, scholars of comparative and American politics and international relations, and methodologists who explore the relationship between experimental methods and observational data.

This year, in addition to our interest in the wide array of topics mentioned above, we are also particularly interested in submissions focused on the ethics of experimental research or focused on identity (as it relates to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, class and the like).

Proposals can be submitted online.

Conference website.

Paper proposals will be accepted until November 1, 2019. We aim to notify authors of our program decisions in late November.

We look forward to receiving your proposals!
