Call For Papers

In a break with tradition, the 2013 conference aims to bring together four distinct, but significantly interrelated, research and practitioner communities – those of political science, political communication, political marketing and public affairs – for the purposes of engaging in inter-disciplinary debates related to the role, practice and impact of marketing in contemporary politics. The conference is themed:

What is Marketing Doing to Politics?

Contemporary perspectives within, and between, the 4 Ps: Political Science, Political Communication, Political Marketing and Public Affairs

Conference tracks will be anchored in the various disciplines and designed – where possible - to encourage cross disciplinary debate and knowledge sharing. Submissions are therefore welcomed from a broad range of perspectives and purposes. Papers that seek to develop theory, present empirical or comparative work, explore methodology, practitioner perspectives and case studies are all welcome. In light of the encouraging response to our earlier Call for Track Proposals, we would especially welcome contributions in the following areas:

Political marketing and democracy
The reshaping of contemporary politics in response to the notion of market orientation
Contemporary political institutions and political marketing
Marketing and political engagement
Political marketing and floating voters

Special Call for Papers Related to the 2012 US Presidential Election
In addition to the themes outlined above, the conference organizers would also like to include a series of special sessions based on an anatomical dissection of the 2012 US Presidential Election. These would ideally be presented by scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds which, when taken together, could sharpen theory and provide the basis of in-class material for extended treatment of the subject. If you feel that you have a contribution to make in this area, please mark your abstract 2012 US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

Student Submissions
The IPMC encourages abstract submissions from doctoral researchers in any discipline related to the themes addressed by the conference. A doctoral colloquium will be held on Wednesday 18th September and successful submissions to the colloquium may lead to full participation at the conference. A decision concerning the suitability of papers will be made by the chair and co-chair of the colloquium panel.

Please note that, thanks to generous sponsorship from the Political Studies Association, submission of a successful abstract to the colloquium organizers will entitle the student to a free conference place. For obvious reasons numbers are limited and further details will be provided shortly (on the conference website).
