Call for Papers: Psychology, Politics, and Public Policy

History of Psychology invites manuscripts for a special issue on the
historical intersections of psychology, public policy, and politics. The
goal of the special issue is to examine the ways in which public policy and
politics have been influenced by the discipline and profession of Psychology
and how, in turn, the discipline and profession have been shaped by public
policy and politics.

We are open to any public policy domain (e.g., mental health and healthcare;
public health and disaster relief; education and welfare; transportation and
safety; defense and law enforcement) and interested in papers that engage
politics broadly conceived.

We particularly welcome articles that address policy and psychology issues

The submission deadline is September 15, 2010.
