Current Research on Issues and Topics in Comparative Scholarship (CRITICS)
The Current Research on Issues and Topics In Comparative Scholarship (CRITICS) series is co-sponsored by the Department of Government and the Mortara Center for International Studies. Following a brief introduction, speakers will present for 30-40 minutes, and the remainder of the time will be Q&A. We will strive to share a work-in-progress of the speaker about a week in advance. Seminar participants are not required to read the paper, although doing so would be beneficial. All fall 2020 seminars will be held online.
