2023 Research Conference

The Center for C-SPAN Scholarship & Engagement (CCSE) at Purdue University announces the call for papers and posters for the 10th annual CCSE Research Conference on October 23-25, 2023. The theme is Politics, Communication, and Polarization. 

During this conference scholars from a variety of fields have presented papers that incorporate a wide range of content from the C-SPAN Archives. This year we are expanding presentations to include papers and posters. There are so many new ways that political leaders are using communication techniques, so we invite papers and posters that emphasizer the theme of Politics, Communication, and Polarization. All projects chosen for presentation must utilize the C-SPAN Video Library for analysis.    

PRESENTATION, RESEARCH FUNDS, and PUBLICATION 

Accepted papers and posters will be presented at the national CCSE Research Conference. Each accepted paper will receive a stipend of $1,500* and each accepted poster submission will receive a stipend of $500*.  Edited papers and poster abstracts from this conference will be reviewed by our editorial board and final, edited copies will be published in The Year in C-SPAN Archives Research

Papers from the previous conferences are available to download for free at  docs.lib.purdue.edu/ccse. Participants are encouraged to consult previous volumes and papers for ideas and citations. Participants also are encouraged to use the C-SPAN Archives’ Application Programming Interface (API) to extract text and data from the Archives.
