Philadelphia-area American Politics Workshop
The program has four papers on a diversity of topics:
Rene Lindstadt (Essex) & Ryan J. Vander Wielen (Temple): "Dynamic Partisanship: Party Loyalty and Agenda Setting in the U.S. House"
Zachary W. Oberfield (Haverford) and Daniel Weaver (Mathematica): "How Government Creates (and Doesn’t Create) Feedback: Poverty Policy, Incarceration, and Civic Engagement"
Mara Ostfield (Penn): "One Vision: Spanish-Language Media Effects on Latino Political Identity"
Joshua Darr (Penn) and Matthew Levendusky (Penn): "Relying on the Ground Game: The Placement and Effect of Campaign Field Offices"
Papers will be available a few weeks prior to the conference for attendees to read in advance. For each paper, the authors will make a brief presentation and a grad student will provide a short commentary, then we'll open up for broader discussion. We'll leave time in the schedule for a long lunch to give attendees an opportunity to meet and talk with one another. Please contact Marc Meredith with questions.
