Social Sciences Special Issue
Tuesday, July 11, 2017 10:10 AM
The issue of Social Sciences will highlight cutting edge research that examines empirical linkages at the intersection of population dynamics, development, and environment in a context of climate change.  
Ever since Ehrlich and Holdren proposed the IPAT model in the early 1970s, social scientists have sought to provide elaborations and evaluate the evidence against their model. However, the onset of global climate change research has overtaken much of the nuanced understandings associated with earlier empirical and theoretical work about population, development, and environment linkages. In this Special Issue, we seek to publish papers that reinvigorate this earlier line of inquiry with data and theories that can do so in the context of also understanding the current and future impact of global climate change. Innovative methodologies and a greater array of data sources at multiple levels of analysis should facilitate the observation and evaluation of linkages across these three domains. This Special Issue welcomes research papers at any scale, from global to local, but these should explicitly observe factors in each domain and the mechanisms linking across domains. Papers should conform to basic social science research expectations and include a theoretical framework and systematic evaluation of evidence.

Call-for-Proposals: New Book on Midwestern Politics

Call-for-Proposals: New Book on Midwestern Politics
by Catherine McNicol Stock

Scholars, commentators, and political analysts are asked to submit proposals of 500 words or less outlining a proposed chapter for a volume on the history of Midwestern politics since 1945.

Given the recent election outcome, in which major Midwestern states such as Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio switched their support from previous election cycles, the editors believe this is an important moment for a deeper exploration of the dynamics of Midwestern politics and the political culture of the region.The editors also believe this is the key moment to bring together two emerging and critical trends in American historiography, namely the burgeoning of scholarly work on the growth of political conservatism in the United States in the late 20th century and the recent upsurge of interest in the history of the Midwest.

Topics for the volume could include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
