The Comparative Politics Workshop Organizing Committee would like to announce the workshop’s Fall 2020 schedule. We have a great lineup of professors and students this semester.
The CPW will be held over zoom on select Tuesdays from 4:15-6:15 pm and Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm (details below). Papers and call details will be circulated approximately one week ahead of each meeting via the CUNY CP Google Group. If you are not a member of the Google Group, you may email email@example.com for each week’s paper.
The workshop is a venue for comparativists and IR scholars (defined broadly) —faculty, students, and alumni—to workshop conference papers, peer-reviewed articles, or book chapters. Our goal is to provide a relaxed, informal, and collegial environment to share and develop our work. This workshop is a student-run initiative that relies on the support and energy of the GC comparative politics faculty, students, and alumni.
