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. The nature of the workshops is meant to be quite open. 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 Fall/Spring semesters, we are meeting on Thursdays, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, in Harkness Hall 112. To join the group and for any other inquiries, please email Tasos Kalandrakis (kalandrakis@rochester.edu) or John Duggan (john.duggan@rochester.edu).
