Politics, Sandwiches, and Comments

You are here

PSAC (Politics, Sandwiches, and Comments) is a workshop for work-in-progress (mainly) in comparative politics and international relations. PSAC seminars feature papers from Cornell Government Department graduate students and faculty and from scholars at other universities. These sessions allow students, faculty, and guests to engage in lively debate and discussion on diverse topics from different subfields of political science.

PSAC workshop seminars feature draft papers from Cornell graduate students and faculty, as well as scholars from other universities. We seek out work representing an eclectic mix of research methods, spanning the qualitative/quantitative and experimental/observational gamut. These sessions allow students, faculty, and guests to engage in lively debate and discussion on diverse topics from different subfields in political science.

All are welcome. Interested graduate students and faculty in any field are encouraged to join us. The workshop meets on Fridays from 12:15pm to 1:45pm. Unless noted otherwise, sessions are in 106 White Hall. And as the seminar name suggests, each session features a light lunch and soda -- and of course lively comments.
