American Politics Seminar

The American Politics Seminar is a year-long speaker series that features leading scholars in American Politics.

Invited scholars present cutting-edge research and engage in lively debate with faculty and graduate students. The seminar is made possible partially through a generous grant from the Bankard Fund for Political Economy at the University of Virginia. The Seminar is organized by Jeff Jenkins and Rachel Potter.

Coffee and breakfast treats are served, and papers are generally sent to invitees in the week or so prior to each talk.
