MPSA Deadline Reminder

CALL FOR PAPERS. 71st MPSA Political Science Conference, April 11-14, 2013. October 5th Proposal Deadline. 

Please forward this email to colleagues or graduate students who may be interested in presenting at the 71st Annual MPSA Political Science Conference, which will be held at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.  The MPSA Conference has sections that examine the interaction of political science with other disciplines, and the conference provides many opportunities to network with colleagues. You do not need to be a member to submit a proposal or present a paper, but you do need to have an account:

The MPSA also publishes one of the top journals in the discipline, the American Journal of Political Science.  The editor of the AJPS is Rick Wilson, Rice University. Guidelines for authors as well as a sample issue of the AJPS that explores research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) can be found on the website of Wiley-Blackwell: http://tinyurl.com/9g4r9co
On May 9th, the House of Representatives passed an amendment to prohibit NSF funding for political science research. This will not reduce government spending, but uses a political decision about what should be funded versus a merit based decision. Congress has agreed to begin the new fiscal year with a Continuing Resolution (CR) that would last six months, but please contact your Senators: http://tinyurl.com/93sd5vc
Founded in 1939, the MPSA is located at 101 W. Kirkwood Avenue, Suite 207, Bloomington, IN.   http://tinyurl.com/9f9w5m9  If you received this email in error, click here to unsubscribe: http://tinyurl.com/9qbtz62
