The CISE (Italian Center for Electoral Studies) has set up a new series of weekly seminars. The new series will run from September to December 2019.
The CISE seminars were born from:
the need and interest of the CISE to establish a practice of open discussion for the work in progress of its researchers;
the aim to establish and consolidate a network of scientific interaction relating the CISE within the LUISS research community (both in the Department of Political Science and in other departments) and with other universities in the Rome area.
As a result, it is open to any researcher wishing to present their empirical work in progress (both quantitative and qualitative) on issues of democratic representation broadly meant (e.g., but not limited to, electoral behavior, party competition, party systems, electoral legislation), from any scientific discipline.
We believe this provides a great opportunity for PhD students, postdocs and faculty engaged in empirical research to discuss their work with an audience that is not necessarily specialized in the specific field, thus providing wide-ranging feedback, and for the audience to learn about the everyday practice of empirical research in the social sciences.
Seminars will be held on Thursday at 1pm in room 409 of the main building of the Viale Romania LUISS campus.
It is assumed that all participants have read the paper before the seminar, so that little time (usually 15’) will be dedicated to the paper presentation.
A light lunch will be provided for up to 20 participants; seating is limited, so please register in advance.
