We encourage all who are interested in the use of social networks to study politics to join the Political Networks organized section of the American Political Science Association. Graduate student members of APSA can now join the section for FREE! (no strings attached!)
Our section has grown rapidly since its formation in 2009, and we’re already seeing some of the benefits of forming our section. Networks research is gaining increased attention in the discipline and in popular journalism, and networks-based articles are increasingly finding homes in leading academic journals. Additionally, a new generation of scholars is learning how to apply network methods to political questions. These successes are due in part to the concerted efforts of our section’s members.
To join, (create a login and then) log into the MyAPSA site. Members will receive discounts on future conference attendance and will also regularly receive our Nodes and Edges publication. Please note that while you do have to join APSA to become a member of the section, you can join APSA as an interdisciplinary or associate member. And a reminder: graduate student members of APSA can join the section for FREE!
