Call for Paper: ACPS Panel for 2010 APSA ANnual Meeting [12-15-2009]

2010 APSA Annual Meeting Call for Proposals
Submission Deadline: December 15, 2009 11:59 p.m. EST.

Association for Chinese Political Studies

As the association focused on China, ACPS seeks paper proposals that
link China with the central themes of the 2010 APSA convention and
examine the domestic and international dimensions of how China might
have been implicated in the great recession and how it has coped with
it. There are no restrictions with respect to theoretical or
methodological perspectives but scholars are encouraged to examine the
relevant issues, for example, the extension of retirement benefits for
rural residents, in their proper historical and comparative
perspective. The ACPS is particularly interested in papers which make
good use of primary source materials and are theoretically oriented.
Paper proposals should not exceed 250 words and should contain the
author's name, title and affiliation, paper title, and paper abstract.

Proposal submitters need to formally enter their proposals at the APSA
website (for the ACPS section). Specific questions may be addressed to
Dali Yang of the University of Chicago (,
