On May 24-25, 2002, the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee and State Politics and Policy Quarterly will co-sponsor a conference on the study of legislatures and representation in the U.S. states. The conference, to be held at the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee, welcomes participation by all social scientists interested in state politics and policy, especially members of the organized section on State Politics and Policy-Making of the American Political Science Association. A stipend will be awarded to paper-givers to cover a major portion of their expenses for the conference.
The focus of this conference will be on studying general questions related to legislatures and representation broadly speaking in the context of the U.S. states. Thus, any research question relating to political behavior and policy-making by state legislatures would be appropriate for a paper proposal. Topics that connect state legislatures with other state institutions would also be welcome. Since state legislatures are a central institution in state policy-making, topics that focus on the various aspects of state policy-making are particularly welcome.
Read the Official Call for Papers for more information about submitting proposals. All proposals must be received by October 1, 2001 to receive full consideration. Propsoals should be sent to:
