This year nepUL is pleased to announce the new CFA for its new International Political Studies Colloquium: More Representation = Democracy?.There has been a growing debate within the media and academic realm in what democracy is concerned. We may often consider the legitimacy of our democracy when hearing an emerging expression of feelings of distrust towards politicians, increasing abstention in many democratic countries and raise of social frustration which leads to the election of so-called extremist parties, non-politicians and populist views. As so, is representation a sufficient condition for the existance of a democratic society or is it only necessary?

deadline for submissions:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of a cell phone will sext. One study notes that, “of 870 U.S. adults aged 18-72 … 88% had sexted in their lifetime.” This special call for papers seeks to explore the ways that sexting has affected our ideas of romance and intimacy. How has sexting influenced the popular romance novel, the chick flick, or the soap opera? How has sexting changed how we think about romance and love? We welcome papers that engage with these topics, and encourage interdisciplinary approaches.

This special call for papers understands sexting quite broadly, ranging from the flirtatious email sent to a partner at home through to the unsolicited dick pic sent over Tinder.
