Dear Colleagues

We would like to announce a Call For Papers (CFP) for a special issue of New Political Science: A Journal of Politics and Culture entitled “The Great Recession: Causes, Consequences, and Responses.” The special issue will be published in December 2011. The deadline for submitting a proposal is January 1, 2011. Please see below for the Call for Papers.

New Political Science (NPS) focuses on developing analyses which reflect a commitment to progressive social change as well as those which are within exploratory phases of development in political science. NPS is the journal of the Caucus for a New Political Science (CNPS). CNPS was founded in 1967 to make the study of politics relevant to the struggle for a better world. The Caucus is organized around the position that a commitment to social justice, a sustainable democratic society, and human rights is central to the study of politics. Members of the Caucus are progressive scholars, activists, and practitioners. For more information about CNPS or the journal, please visit:

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Our emails are attached to the CFP.

Call For Papers: NPS Special Issue 33.4 (December 2011)

The Great Recession: Causes, Consequences, and Responses

Systemic and structural contradictions, combined with specific public policies, culminated in the so-called “Great Recession” that began in 2008 and continues into the present. While most policy makers are committed to strategies of muddling through without addressing systemic and structural problems, it behoves progressives to offer deeper, critical analyses that address root causes and shortcomings of mainstream policy prescriptions, on both national and global stages. The 33.4 (December 2011) issue of New Political Science will be devoted to those analyses. The special issue will address three main areas. First, what were, and are, the causes of the crisis? To what degree can the crisis be attributed to long term underlying systemic and structural forces characteristic of advanced capitalism, and to what degree can the crisis be attributed to specific policies of specific administrations? Would the collapse have occurred without the war on terror? Without the corporate fraud and speculative trading made possible by neoliberal policy choices? Second, what are the consequences of the crisis that offer both opportunities and challenges? These might include, for example, a critical turning point in the ascendancy of neoliberalism, fiscal meltdown in state and local governments, and increasing commitment to military Keynesianism. Has the crisis opened or closed opportunities for progressive reform in education, sustainable development, health care, immigration, and others? Third, what are the appropriate responses by progressives? What particular policy responses appear most likely to solve the problems, both in the short term and long term? What responses are likely to offer palliatives and which offer real, long term reform and transformation? In the U.S., what, if anything, can Democrats and Republicans offer in the way of effective policy responses? In other countries, what, if anything, can dominant policy makers offer?

Submission Guidelines: Preliminary proposals of 250-500 words should be sent to both editors by January 1, 2011. After reviewing those proposals, the editors will invite contributors to submit full articles by April 15, 2011. The co-editors may be contacted at:<> and<>.
