Minnesota Political Methodology Colloquium Graduate Student Conference 2018

(Post by Carly Potz-Nielsen and Robert Ralston)

We are very excited to announce a new Minnesota Political Methodology Colloquium (MPMC) initiative: the Minnesota Political Methodology Graduate Student Conference.  The conference is scheduled for May 4 & May 5, 2018.

The Minnesota Political Methodology Graduate Student Conference is designed to provide doctoral students with feedback on their research from peers and faculty. Research papers may focus on any substantive topic, employ any research methodology, and/or be purely methodological. We are particularly interested in novel applied work to interesting and important questions in political science, sociology, psychology, and related fields.

The conference represents a unique opportunity for graduate students in different programs, across different disciplines, and with different substantive interests to network and receive feedback on their work.  Papers will receive feedback from a faculty discussant, written feedback from other panelists, and comments/suggestions from audience members.  

The conference will occur over two days (May 4 and May 5, 2018) and feature at least 24 presentations in 6 panels. Proposals are due December 1, 2017.

Our keynote speaker for the event is Sara Mitchell, F. Wendell Miller Professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa. 

Details about the conference may be found here.

Questions should be addressed to mpmc@umn.edu
