Description

This half-semester seminar surveys political science literature on five major topics in the study of electoral politics in democracies and hybrid regimes: voting behavior, turnout and political participation, political parties and party systems, distributive politics, and redistribution and the welfare state. The assigned readings on each topic mix canonical texts with examples of more recent research. Readings are drawn from all world regions. The course serves as one of the core modules comprising the Comparative Politics Proseminar and is primarily intended for PhD students in Political Science. Students from other graduate programs are also welcome. We will meet in the second half of the fall semester.
