Abstract

This panel invites empirical and theoretical papers that seek to combine sociological aspects of political thought and culture with a conceptual and historical approach to theory and rhetoric. The paper should explore how political agents engage in action at the grassroot level, shedding light on the creative political mind in action. Instead of grounding analysis in established and ossified political science theories like neofunctionalism or intergovernmentalism this point of view seeks to capture the dynamic contingency, reflexivity and uncertainty of political action.
