American Politics Graduate Student Workshop

The American Politics Graduate Student Workshop is supported by CSAP and provides a forum for Yale Ph.D. students focusing on American politics to present their work for peer review in an informal setting.

The workshop usually meets on selected Tuesdays from 12:00-1:15 p.m.  Workshops are being held in a hybrid format with presentations being held both in person and on Zoom.

To join the group and receive regular email announcements for this series, please contact the Graduate Student Organizer, Tylir Fowler.
