The Mississippi Political Science Association calls for papers for our Fall 2012 Annual Conference, which will be held on the Delta State campus November 2 - 3, 2012. This year's conference theme is Cities, States, & Nations: Political Legitimacy in Crisis. From the reaction against austerity measures in the Eurozone to the uprisings in the Arab world citizens have demonstrated their discontent and lack of confidence in governments, political leaders, and various public policies in several states and regions around the globe.
This year the Mississippi Political Science Association (MSPSA) invites participants to ponder the crisis of political legitimacy. For example, papers might focus on an analysis of current or historical events; a particular region or country, a study of crisis management policy and procedures; or a theoretical discussion of political legitimacy. Relevant research from all disciplines is welcomed and encouraged. All faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students in political science or related fields (e.g., public administration), who are affiliated with universities, colleges, or community/junior colleges--in Mississippi and beyond--are invited to submit proposals. We especially invite research submissions from undergraduate and graduate students and both categories carry "Best Paper" awards.
