Co-editors Barrett Lee, Dennis Culhane, and Marybeth Shinn seek papers for a volume of The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science entitled The Dynamics of Homelessness: Trajectories and Policies. The volume will examine the trajectories that people follow into, through, and out of homelessness, the individual circumstances and structural forces that shape these trajectories, and the programs designed to alter them or to prevent homelessness in the first place. Papers representing a range of disciplines, methods, and orientations (theoretical, applied, policy-oriented) are welcome. To be considered, please email a 2-3 page proposal to Barry Lee at no later than November 30, 2019. The proposal should describe your main research questions, their significance, and how you will address them. After initial evaluations by the co-editors, authors of 15 of the proposals will be asked to complete full paper drafts by May 2020 and, following review and revision, final versions by August 2020. Publication of the volume in The Annals is scheduled for early 2021. Inquiries can be directed to Barry (, Dennis (, or Beth (
