Dear colleagues, friends, and members of the APG,

We hope this email finds you well. Below are some announcements of interest to those teaching and researching US politics.

  1. APG PSA23 Panels:

In a change to previous years, between now and mid-September there is the opportunity for specialist groups, such as the APG, to submit panels for the annual PSA conference prior to the open call beginning.

  • The conference is convened by the University of Liverpool, 3 – 5 April 2023
  • Full information on this can be found here
  • If you are interested in proposing an APG panel, or have a paper that could be included in one, get in touch with APG Chair Philip Davies (pjd@dmu.ac.uk) by September 1st.
  1. APG Events, Save the Dates:

We have two face-to-face APG events coming over the horizon:

  1. Congratulations (again!) To  Dr Ursula Hackett:

Last week we announced that Dr Ursula Hackett had won the Richard E. Neustadt Book Prize, which is awarded by the PSA American Politics Group.

  • Ursula has also the 2022 Theodore J. Lowi Policy Studies Journal Best Article Award, for the article ‘‘Attenuated Governance: How Policymakers Insulate Private School Choice from Legal Challenge.’’ 
  • This prize was awarded by the Public Policy Section of the American Political Science Association.
  • Once again, and on behalf of all APG members: Congratulations from us all to Dr Ursula Hackett.
