The annual meeting of the Alabama Political Science Association will be March 21-22, 2014 at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama. We hope you will join AlaPSA and participate in our conference.
As politics, policy and government in both Alabama and the nation evolve, we look to facilitate engaging debate and discussion throughout our panels. The general theme of the conference is broadly focused on the connectivity between Alabama politics and concerns for rights and human security at the national and global levels. As in the past, this year's panels will cover a range of topics from policy (including, but not limited to health, social policy, foreign and military policy), to politics-as-usual (democracy, American institutions, voting and elections, comparative politics and international relations), political theory, and closer-to-home issues (Alabama politics, immigration issues, publications and graduate student development).
We invite abstracts (up to 250 words) for individual papers and panel submissions. Student panels are encouraged. To be considered, abstracts should be received no later than midnight on Friday, February 14, 2014. Early in the new year we will be sending a follow-up email with additional information on the conference and a location to submit your abstracts.

We hope you will join AlaPSA and participate in our conference as we enter the fifth decade of the organization. Auburn University and the University of Alabama were founding members of AlaPSA over the 1972-1973 years. Therefore, we celebrated our 40th Anniversary as an association during both the 2012 and 2013 years by holding our conferences on their campuses. We highlighted presentations from a number of the founders of AlaPSA.
We hope you will join AlaPSA and participate in our conferences as we celebrate the 41st Anniversary of the organization. AlaPSA invites you to join (or renew your membership in) our organization. The cost is only $25 per year.
