EDGS presents Comparative Politics Workshops

EDGS is sponsoring Comparative Politics Workshops (CPW), organized by Professor Ana Arjona, Political Science, which will meet about three times per quarter during the 2013-14 academic year. The workshops will have both outside speakers and Northwestern graduate students presenting their work. The goal is to bring scholars working on different topics and geographical areas, and relying on different methods. All CPWs will be held on Tuesdays from 12:15-2:00pm at the Buffett Center (lunch is included).
