Comparative Politics Workshop
The UCLA Comparative Politics Workshop serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of work in progress in the field of comparative politics. During 2012-13, the Workshop will meet from 2:00-3:30 on designated Friday afternoons in the fall quarter and on Wednesday afternoons in the winter and spring quarters . Meetings will be in room 4357 Bunche Hall (the Political Science Conference Room), unless otherwise noted.
The Comparative Politics Workshop is organized by Professors Miriam Golden, Daniel Treisman, and Michael Ross. Workshop papers will be posted to this web page approximately a week before each meeting date. Archives from previous years can be found by following the link on the left side of this page.
Political Theory Workshop
The UCLA Political Theory Workshop aims to host a diverse set of presentations each year in the field of political theory. Presenters circulate a paper in advance (posted here) and we hope that all participants in the workshop will take care to read the paper before the workshop itself. Our guests offer only a brief précis of their papers and a designated respondent then provides an initial assessment before opening the floor for a general discussion. Presentations are open to the public and anyone is welcome to attend; please feel free to circulate notice of upcoming talks to interested parties. The Workshop generally takes place on Friday afternoons in 4357 Bunche Hall. The Spring 2013 workshop convener is Joshua Dienstag (email@example.com). More information on political theory at UCLA, as well as papers from last year, can be found by following the Political Theory Workshop and Political Theory Workshop Archive links on the left of this page.
International Relations Workshop
About once a month, scholars from other universities come to UCLA to present something that they have been working on and discuss it with graduate students and faculty members in the International Relations field here at UCLA. Papers are generally made available via email a week or two in advance. The IR Workshop generally meets on Friday afternoons and anyone associated with our political science department is welcome to attend. In 2011-12, the main organizers of the workshop were Ron Gurantz and Matt Gottfried. A schedule of presenters for the 2011-12 International Relations Workshop can be found by following the link on the left side of this page..
