About CPW

The GW Comparative Politics Workshop is a forum for the presentation of ongoing work by GW faculty,  graduate students, and occasionally visitors  in a constructive and critical environment. The workshop meets on the first and third Friday of each month between 12:30 and 2:00 pm at the Sigelman Room (Monroe Hall 428, GW Political Science Department) unless otherwise noted.  There are no formal presentations.  Papers are posted on this website one week in advance and are read ahead of time by participants.  A discussant summarizes the most important points of the paper and then offers a critique, followed by a response by the presenter and open discussion.  The workshop faculty directors are Celeste Arrington and Stephen Kaplan.
