Last week the North Carolina Political Science Association (NCPSA) held its annual meeting in Durham. I had the sincere please of meeting many scholars there, including Jody Baumgartner. He sends this call for papers:
This special issue of SSCOR (NB: Social Science Computer Review) will be devoted to the continued evolution of the Internet’s role in political campaigns, focusing on the campaign of 2012. While the emphasis will be on the presidential campaign, articles that focus on sub-presidential politics will be welcomed, especially if it can be argued that what is seen in the sub-presidential campaign(s) in question reflect a larger trend. Although the natural focus of an issue devoted to a presidential election will be on politics, manuscripts from all social science disciplines will be welcomed. Articles should, however, emphasize how the 2012 elections inform some aspect of social science theory.
If interested, please send a 2-3 paragraph proposal, including full contact information and a brief bio (75-100 words) to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
