The theme for the 2016 Southern Political Science Association Annual Annual Conference is Rich and Poor Democracy. The theme reflects an overarching interest in the positive and normative aspects of the inequality in democratic representation. The Southern Political Science Association is one of the oldest and largest political science organizations in the United States. Founded in 1929, its principle goals are to improve teaching, to promote interest and research in theoretical and practical political problems, to encourage communication, and to develop standards of competence and respect between persons engaged in the professional study and practice of government and politics.
Sheehan also recently spoke at the 2015 International Studies Association (ISA) Annual Conference in New Orleans, the 2015 American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Conference in San Francisco, and is scheduled to appear at the 2016 Middle East Dialogue/Policy Studies Organization (MED/PSO) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. in February 2016.
