theory of sara: The APSA, false elitism and the flight from reality:
To wrap all of this up, I am quite frustrated with the fact that the APSA continues to go down this path of denying the importance of real politics in favor of propping up false elitism and irrelevance. This of course assumes that my work is relevant, which I would naturally challenge that it is, but more importantly, what I wish the organizers of APSA would get through their heads is that the American Political Science Association is supposed to bring together each year a conference on politics, not fantasy or phantom menaces.
I don’t think that it is supposed to bring together a conference on politics, but a conference that represents political science. Those are two distinct positions.
