UPDATES!

The Comparative Politics Workshop presents the updated Spring Schedule 2012. Please note that the last session on June 6th will be different than the usual format. Lisa Wedeen will be giving a talk (“Ideology in the Political Present: Notes from Syria”) rather than circulating a paper. We are very excited about this quarter and hope you can join us!
