Graduate students who receive academic credit for their participation and the faculty leading the workshop present their own work in progress on issues in comparative politics, with other workshop members serving as discussants. A key feature of the seminar is its commitment to the notion of research as a collective enterprise in which participants benefit from sharing their academic work and receiving feedback. Graduate students from all years of study, including their first and second years, are welcome in the workshop. The seminar occasionally invites other scholars to present their work in progress. Offered Fall 2012 and Spring 2013.
