An opportunity to discuss your research project
Hallsworth Visiting Professor Laura Stoker from the Political Science department at the University of California, Berkeley, will be in Manchester during most of June. As part of her fellowship she is offering to meet with social science graduate students to hear about their dissertation research plans and activities. Professor Stoker’s specialization is public opinion, voting and elections, and political socialization in the United States. She could meet one-on-one or with groups of students. These meetings should give students an opportunity (1) to practice explaining their projects (or proposed projects) clearly and succinctly, which is important when on the academic job market; (2) to get another perspective on methodological or substantive issues that may be worrisome; and (3) to get feedback from an expert on research design.
If you are interested in meeting her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment – and include a little information about your project. We will then let you know dates and times when Professor Stoker is available.
