CRISP - Current Research in the Study of Politics
Department's Current Research in the Study of Politics (CRISP) is a central
element of our graduate program. CRISP is an annual speaker series that brings
national and international scholars to speak on current issues in political
science, as selected and guided by the research agendas of our third year
graduate students. CRISP is held each spring and includes the invited speaker
series as well as the opportunity at the end of the semester for third year
graduate students to present and receive feedback on a preliminary dissertation
proposal. All talks will be held from 2:30-4:30pm in Gore 116.
