We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers.  Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes.  As always, proposals addressing any topic at the intersection of politics and media are welcome

This year, we are especially eager to receive proposals concerning media coverage of the 2016 elections and primaries. Studies may include press coverage, cartoons, and the response to the electoral process in film and literature. We also welcome studies on the participation of women, gays, trans genders, African Americans, and minorities in politics
