Panel: Problems and Methods in the Study of Comparative Politics in Latin America
Scholars in comparative politics are increasingly concerned about “problem selection“ and the methodologies they employ as well as the quality of the evidence they use. One conspicuous trend in the study of Latin American politics has been the explicit concern with said central cannons for doing research in the comparative politics of the region. This trend transpires in the rich variety of analytical lenses and methodological achievements in the study of politics in Latin America. This panel, sponsored by JPLA Journal of Politics in Latin America, seeks to offer a setting to discuss the advances and shortcomings in research endeavors in the field of Latin American politics, eschewing narrow methodological diatribes and encouraging paper-givers to sharpen the analytical and methodological underpinnings of their contributions.The panel is chaired by Jorge Gordin (GIGA Hamburg) and the discussnat will be Timothy Power (Oxford).According to ECPR rules, paper proposals must be submitted through the MyECPR system (https://www.ecprnet.eu/myecpr/login.asp).
The deadline for proposals is 1 February 2011
