This blog is primarily for members of the APSA to discuss 1) the general question of siting annual meetings so that all members of the association feel reasonably safe, comfortable, and welcome at the site and 2) the specific question of siting the conference in New Orleans in 2012.
The blog's main work will be through comment threads. I encourage and expect vigorous debate, but any posting I deem to be a personal attack, or to be racist or homophobic, will be removed as soon as I see it or hear about it.
Unlike some of the comment blogs, I will make occasional new posts to update on the situation as it develops on the ground. If you hear about some major development, drop me a line and I will try to blog it here.
