The Miller Center for Public Affairs' and the scholars of the American Political History Initiative are sponsoring a new website to facilitate the study of American Political Development. http://www.americanpoliticaldevelopment.org
The website seeks to bring together a wide variety of resources for APD scholars in one easily accessible source.
The two major sections of this site are the American Political Development (APD) Town Square and Electronic Classroom. The APD Town Square, currently available, gathers information and links relevant to APD scholars including newly published books, with sample chapters, from a variety of journals and presses; conference and professional notices; book reviews; funding opportunities; and links to relevant journals and other websites. The APD Town Square also hosts "Electronic Forums" on timely topics relevant to the APD field. In the near future, the Electronic Classroom will provide links to resources on the web for those teaching APD at the college level. Resources will include primary source links, syllabi, exam and assignment questions from other scholars engaged in teaching APD related courses, all categorized by topic. The goal of the Electronic Classroom is to make readily available a wide variety of teaching resources and facilitate the use of multimedia sources for those teaching American political history.
We encourage you to visit the site and send us any comments or suggestions for material to be posted on the site.
