Welcome to the Comparative Politics Colloquium at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
The Comparative Politics Colloquium (CPC) is the intellectual forum for comparativists of all areas and methods to meet and discuss current work. In addition to featuring faculty papers and outside speakers, the CPC is an integral part of graduate training in the department of political science, serving as a place for students to present papers as well as dissertation prospectuses, grant proposals, dissertation chapters, and practice job talks. The general format is for papers to be made available on our website a week in advance, and there is an expectation that colloquium participants will have read the papers in advance. The CPC meets weekly on Thursdays from 12:00-1:15. All meetings will be in the Ogg room (422 North Hall) unless otherwise noted on the schedule. The CPC is a great opportunity to get to know fellow comparativists as well as to learn about and advance each others’ scholarship. The faculty director of the CPC is Erica Simmons. Please contact graduate student coordinators Evan Morier and Molly Minden (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information about the CPC or to be added to its mailing list.
The Comparative Politics Colloquium is grateful for the generous support of the Thomas Leonard Wemple Johnson Endowment for Political Science.
