2017 APSA Annual Meeting Call for Papers

Divisions 36 and 37: Elections, Public Opinion and Voting Behavior

Chairs: Tiffany D. Barnes, University of Kentucky and John Barry Ryan, Stony Brook University

The section welcomes paper and panel proposals on a wide range of topics related to elections, public opinion and voting behavior, including political participation, electoral choice, party competition, campaigns and electoral integrity, both within the United States and in comparative perspective. Research advancing new theories, analyzing original data, or employing innovative methodological approaches are especially welcome. Proposals addressing the conference’s core theme of “The Quest for Legitimacy” are encouraged, but we welcome all proposals that are theoretically distinctive and empirically innovative. We are especially interested in substantively cohesive panel proposals and roundtables.
