Updating our Blogroll

With Jonathan’s help, I recently updated our blogroll, deleting a few blogs that had not been updated in more than a year and adding some additional ones.  I’d like to know of any others I should include.

The criteria are: (1) the blogger(s) should have academic political science training and (2) be blogging, at least in part, about topics with regard to political science and politics.  Yes, I know that is somewhat limiting.  But our blogroll serves a unique purpose, which is to stay on top of the academic blogging going on within political science.

I am also developing what will hopefully be a census of political science blogs for an American Political Science Association report, and any help with our blogroll will also serve that purpose.

Please leave any suggestions in comments.

    This blog: http://dsparks.wordpress.com/recent/ is not updated very frequently, nor does it cover current events, but it is an academic political science blog which meets the criteria you’ve outlined.

    A taxonomy by sub-discipline would also be helpful.

    Agreed! Sub discipline categorization would be great.

    My blog has recently focused on politics in Malawi, but also includes some more general posts about politics in Africa and readings in political science.

    Also, Texas in Africa is written by Laura Seay, an assistant professor of political science at Morehouse.

    Finally, another Africanist blogger is Ken Opalo, a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford.

    My blog ( http://politicalcogito.wordpress.com/ ) features commentaries on European politics, and the study of politics in Europe. I also recommend reading the blog by some LSE students also : ( http://thedisorderofthings.com/ ) .

    Steve Greene has academic political science training and he is blogging, at least in part, about topics with regard to political science and politics.

    I think my blog — http://www.mattglassman.com — fits well. I’m a poli sci Ph.D. who works on the Hill at CRS and blogs regularly.

    We’ve been blogging at MassPoliticsProfs.com for about a month now, with themonkeycage.org as an inspiration. We are three polsci professors and blog on Massachusetts and U.S. politics.

    Another possibility is my blog at http://towardthecommongood.com. I am political science Ph.D. writing mostly about the libertarian ideas of the current Teapublicans, but also about teaching, the state of academia, current events, etc.

    Not sure if you’ve seen this one, which often links to nice analyses of European politics: http://poliscizurich.wordpress.com/

    This is my blog – I’m an assistant professor at UVA-Wise, PhD in political science, and a very large advocate of plaid.
