This is the capstone seminar for non-Honors students in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics concentration. A particular issue or theme in political economy will be selected for intensive, investigation from multiple perspectives: normative, empirical, formal, and interpretive. Discussion will stress integration of these perspectives and how each affects the questions, conceptual frameworks, and methodological choices of the others. Students will undertake short writing exercises and oral presentations, and write a substantial research paper.
Requirements will vary depending on the instructor and course content, but will involve at least two papers totaling at least 25 pages and regular participation in seminar.
