The thirteenth Southern California Comparative Political Institutions (SC2PI) conference will be hosted by Melissa Rogers at Claremont Graduate University on September 13, 2019. The conference series rotates among institutions in (and occasionally beyond) Southern California, bringing together scholars interested in the quantitative and formal study of political institutions. We are interested in papers on political institutions broadly speaking, whether focused on the comparative analysis of political institutions or the effects of particular political institutions on individual behavior. Faculty and advanced graduate students are invited to submit papers. If you have a paper you would like to present, please provide a paper title and abstract by
August 10, 2019 August 15, 2019, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Graduate students should indicate how far along in their program they are. Please also respond if you are interested in serving as a discussant. An announcement about paper acceptances and the conference program will be distributed through the SC2PI email list (you can sign up for email alerts at scpi.politicaldata.org).
The first twelve conferences in the series (held at UC-Riverside (x3), UCLA (x2), USC (x2), Claremont Graduate University (x2), UCSB, UC Merced, UCSD) have been very successful. We hope to continue that success and look forward to seeing you on September 13th. And if you are in a position of influence at your institutions, please consider the possibility of hosting a meeting in the future.
Feel free to – in fact, please – share the call with colleagues that might be interested in presenting or simply attending.
