Idebate Magazine: Call for short submissions on 2012 Presidential Debate Topics
Submitted by Colm Flynn on 8 June 2012
IDEA Guide to the Presidential Debates: A Special Issue of Idebate Magazine
The International Debate Education Association (IDEA) is planning a special September issue of its periodical, Idebate Magazine, around the topic of presidential debating. Our lead contributor for this issue is Bruce Zellers, teacher of AP US history at Greenhills School in Ann Arbor, MI, and history lecturer at Oakland University.
To supplement the main contribution on the history and tradition of presidential debating, we are now also looking for short, non-partisan contributions about specific topics that will arise in the 2012 Obama-Romney debates, including but not limited to marriage, immigration reform, No Child Left Behind, the national debt, healthcare reform, and America’s role abroad. Submissions should be expository, concise, and address positions on both sides of the aisle.
If you are interested in writing a short, expository piece on a 2012 presidential debate topic for this special issue, please email your contribution to the associate publisher, Anne Lovering Rounds (firstname.lastname@example.org). Submissions should be 500-1000 words, double-spaced, and in MS Word. Include a page with your name, institutional affiliation (if applicable), email address, and brief description of your contribution.
The deadline for submissions is July 15, 2012.
