This year I could not wait for the conference paper acceptance confirmation email from the Midwest Political Science Association (MPSA). Every year the MPSA conference is held at the Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago, Illinois. This year I have been logging into the paper submission system and checking that status of my papers every week. Today when I logged into the paper submissions system I celebrated. This year could be epic. 2 papers, 1 panel chair, and opening day at Wrigley field.
Accepted Paper: Lindahl, N. (2014). “Network analysis of social media engagement and linkages within e-government implementations using automated data mining techniques: A study of MSA top 50 local governments.” Midwest Political Science Association 72nd Annual Conference, Conference Paper, Chicago, Illinois.
Accepted Paper: Lindahl, N., & Armenta, J. (2014). “Modeling political campaign contact performance.” Midwest Political Science Association 72nd Annual Conference, Conference Paper, Chicago, Illinois.
Wrigley Field opened in 1914. That means that opening day for the 2014 season will mark 100 years of operations.
