>Polity: 2005"

>Volume 2, Summer 2005.

What is at stake in Polity?  Is Polity as we know and live it a diverse
and 
inclusive endeavor and structure, or perhaps, is it that Polity as we
know 
it is largely a non-recombinative and exclusionary device?  Is Polity an

issue?  Or has Polity been decided?  Is Polity undecidable?
         How do we check and balance a networked Polity that perhaps, 
refuses to reconcile and balance its differences, instead functioning on

imbalance and withholding? What might be needed for balance? In the
U.S.-- 
a Fox News of the Left?   Or, a new branch of governance, as Ethan Leib
has 
proposed?  Is egalitarian Polity the goal, or are there other sorts of 
Polity that we seek to cultivate?
         How important is the media in the structure and execution of 
Polity?  Does Polity still matter, or is Polity ossified, and simply a 
matter of aristocratic maintenance and reproduction? Is Polity still 
conflicted, if not conflated with Deity?  Is Polity merely a function of

Capital?  Does Culture inhibit egalitarian Polity?  What are the 
relationships between Polity, the State and Aristocracy?  Is Global
Polity 
desirable or homogenizing?

All contributions that hold Polity as their central concern are welcome.
Deadline: May 15, 2005

panels,=

we encourage innovative proposals for papers, panels, round-table
discussions, and any non-traditional formats. The circulation of papers
