Wallis Political Economy Working Group

The Political Economy Working Group provides a forum for faculty and graduate students in the political science and economics departments to discuss advanced topics in political economy. These workshops are meant to be open and presenters should feel free to discuss their own research, advertise a new literature, provide insight into an existing literature, or teach a new analytical technique that would be of interest to the group.

In the fall and spring semesters, we meet on Thursdays, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., in Harkness Hall 112. To join the group and for any other inquiries, please email Lawrence Rothenberg at or Sergio Montero at
