This year’s annual meeting of the American Political Science Association will combine in-person panels as well as virtual and on-demand sessions so that all members can attend in the best way for their circumstances.  The adapted hybrid format of the ASPA annual meeting is working to bring political scientists together in an innovative way to encourage collaboration and diversity of thought.  It reflects the theme of this year’s meeting, which is ‘Promoting Pluralism’ and explores the rich diversity in the discipline from methodologies, behaviors and perspectives, to nationality, race, gender and sexuality.

Routledge is proud to fund the Lee Ann Fujii Award for Innovation in the Interpretive Study of Political Violence, in recognition of the late Professor Fujii’s contributions to that area of inquiry.  We would like to congratulate this year’s winner, Natasha Behl at Arizona State University, for her book, Gendered Citizenship: Understanding Gendered Violence in Democratic India (Oxford University Press, 2019).   An honourable mention recognition goes to Susan Thomson, for her chapter, “Engaged Silences as Political Agency in Post-Genocide Rwanda: Jeanne’s Story,” in Rethinking Silence, Voice and Agency in Contested Gendered Terrains edited by Jane L. Parpart and Swati Parashar (Routledge, 2019).
