Call for Papers: Anti-Politics in Times of Crisis
The PSA Anti-Politics Specialist Group invites paper and full panel proposals for the 2021 virtual PSA conference, which will take place on March 29-31, 2021.
Here are some themes we would be interested in:
1. An Over-Stretched Concept? Promoting precision in the analysis of anti-politics.
2. Understanding better the dimensions of anti-political behavior: Gender, race, class and age.
3. Anti-politics during a health crisis: Blame and trust in the context of the Covid-pandemic.
4. Populism and technocracy: Opposites or complements in an anti-political context?
5. Fuelling and funneling frustration as a campaign strategy: Beyond Boris and Trump?
6. Where is anti-politics? Arenas, avenues, platforms and channels for expressing anti-political sentiments.
7. The economy of anti-politics: poor and anti-political or rich and anti-political?
8. Technology and anti-politics: how is technological progress affecting disaffection with the status quo?
Email the proposals to: Gergana.Dimova@winchester.ac.uk.
All proposals should include name, affiliation and email of the presenter(s) and an abstract of maximum 300 words. Abstracts should include:

You are welcome to send whole panel proposals containing between three and five papers. Just a reminder that PSA rules do not allow for all male proposals. Panel proposals should contain a brief description of the panel.
Members as well as non-members of the specialist group are encouraged to apply. Applications from graduate students and early-career academics are welcome. All methodological approaches are welcome. Both single case studies and large N studies will be included. There is no limitation of geographical region or scope.
As usual, we invite submissions reflecting perspectives on anti-politics from all sub-fields in political science, including, but not limited to, policy, elections, parties, media studies, democratic theory and political theory.
