On Sunday, 26 August 2012, storm clouds were gathering over political scientists in the United States.
The American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Meeting and Exhibition 2012 was due to begin on Wednesday, August 29th, but Hurricane Isaac had other plans. The #APSA2012 hashtag was blazing like District 12′s costumes as academics and exhibitors pulled out. (Oxford University Press will not be attending APSA 2012, but you can order books with the conference discount.)
W. K. Winecoff (@whinecough) started the #APSAHungerGames hashtag on Sunday as participants in the #APSA2012 conference began dropping out due to a little thing called a hurricane. Selected tweets roundup.
And Norton, it’s on!
