The ISA - Midwest held its annual conference at the Hilton at the Ballpark in St. Louis, Missouri, from November 7–10, 2013. In 2013, we had approximately 225 participants, a number similar to the 2012 and 2011 conferences. We had 15 roundtables, 41 panels, and 190 papers on the conference program.
Professor Cameron Thies (Arizona State University) served as the program chair and Spencer Willardson (University of Nevada-Las Vegas) served as the conference assistant. The Central Slavic Conference (CSC) and Midwest Association for Latin American Studies (MALAS) joined the ISA - Midwest at the conference. Three ISA sections, Active Learning in International Affairs (ALIAS), Foreign Policy Analysis (FPA), and Scientific Study of International Processes (SSIP), served as conference sponsors. The ISA sponsored journal, Foreign Policy Analysis, also served as a sponsor of the meeting.
Other sponsors included Arizona State University’s School of Politics and Global Studies, the University of Iowa’s Department of Political Science, and Cengage Publishers.
