Workshop on Political Economy

Joint workshop between Tulane’s Department of Political Science and the Murphy Institute

The Political Science/Murphy Institute Workshop brings together scholars working in comparative and international political economy and human rights for an ongoing conversation about participants’ research agendas.

There are two meetings in an academic year, usually one in each semester. Each meeting features a paper by a guest speaker, comments on the paper by a Tulane faculty member discussant, and a Q&A session with the audience. The overarching purpose of the workshop is to enrich the intellectual climate for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, advanced undergraduates and faculty in Political Science and the Murphy Institute, as well as other interested participants in the Tulane community.
