International Association for the Study of German Politics (IASGP)
The theme of the 2016 APSA annual program is “Great Transformations” and is concerned with transformative change either through sudden, dramatic upheavals or through the cumulative result of incremental developments. Quite obviously, Germany has witnessed sudden, dramatic upheavals that have resulted in historical “Great Transformations.” But transformative changes in Germany have also been the result of incremental developments. In keeping with next year’s APSA theme then, the International Association for the Study of German Politics is interested in paper or panel submissions which examine one or the other type of transformative change and its consequences in German politics and society. This might mean party system change; changes in political institutions; demographic change; changes regarding the place of women and minority groups in German society; dramatic policy changes; changes in foreign policy; changes in Germany’s relationship to its neighbors, to the EU, or the United States; and many others. While all submissions relating to German politics will be considered, priority will be given to complete panel submissions, those submissions closely related to the conference theme, and to paper proposals from (or panel submissions including) graduate students.The deadline is January 8, 2016.
