American Politics & Public Policy Workshop

The American Politics & Public Policy Workshop series is cosponsored with the Institution for Social and Policy Studies.  Each seminar features a presentation of current political science research by leading scholars in the field of American politics including distinguished faculty from other institutions, CSAP research fellows, ISPS Postdoctoral Associates, and Ph.D. candidates at Yale.

The workshop meets on most Wednesdays from 12:00-1:15 p.m.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workshop sessions will vary with some being held virtually on Zoom and some being held in-person or in a hybrid format during the 2021-2022 academic year.  Lunch will be available at 11:30 am for in-person workshops held indoors, but will have to be picked up and eaten outside or in a private indoor space before the workshop begins at 12:00 pm.

This workshop is open to the Yale community only. To receive regular announcements and invitations, you must subscribe to the American Politics & Public Policy Workshop at the link below:
