Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association Research Exchange
In lieu of an in-person conference, the Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association (APPSA) will host a research exchange in October 2020. Research exchanges give scholars the opportunity to share their work and receive feedback on that work from peers as well as to provide constructive commentary to their peers. APPSA invites paper submissions addressing the broad theme of “provincial and regional politics.” This includes—but is not limited to—provincial and territorial politics in Canada, federal politics and policy analyzed at the sub-national level, as well as regional politics beyond Canada.
Selected participants will submit their completed paper (maximum 8,000 words) by October 19, 2020. Research exchange participants are also responsible for providing comments on two submitted papers, as assigned by the organizers. Feedback on these assigned papers will be due by October 29, 2020. Upon the completion of the exchange, each participant will have provided comments on two papers and will have received feedback on their own paper from two peers.
The deadline for applications is July 15, 2020. Please provide a paper title and a short abstract (maximum 250 words). We ask that all MA students interested in participating include a short approval letter from their supervising faculty. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Successful applicants will be notified July 24.
A small fee ($25) will be charged for participation. All proceeds will go to the APPSA operating account for use during future APPSA in-person conferences.
