Proposals on any aspect of quantitative or qualitative political methodology are welcome. The call is open but papers should address interesting methodological issues relevant to political scientists. Papers could be a purely methodological in focus, examining a new method, some new software, or provide a critique of an existing method. Alternatively a paper might focus on a substantive research question but one which has significant methodological content and which involves innovation in the approach. The focus of the presentation should be methodological aspects of the research even if future publications emphasise theory or findings. The Political Methodology group aims to help bridge the divide between qualitative and quantitative methods in political research and so there is no requirement that papers should only focus on advanced statistical methods, but such papers would be welcome.
Please send proposals for papers or panels to Andreas Murr by the 1st of December 2018.
