This seminar is closed to the public.
In 2019–2020, the Research Workshop in Comparative Politics (Government 3006) is led by Professors Yuhua Wang and Torben Iversen. Supported initially by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this workshop is now funded by grants from the Weatherhead Center and the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Graduate students who receive academic credit for their participation and other graduate students (space permitting, which it usually does), faculty, and postdoctoral fellows present works in progress on topics 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 the first and second years, are welcome to attend the workshop. The seminar occasionally invites other scholars to present their work.
