This Writing Seminar will expose students to the latest cutting-edge ideas and research methods in constitutional studies. Students will be given the tools to produce their own publishable work in comparative constitutional law and politics. Students will be trained on how to make a paper presentation in advance of presenting their drafts near the end of the term. Students will also have the opportunity to engage with the work of (and have dinner with) leading scholars in the field, who will visit this Writing Seminar to present their works-in-progress, eager for student reactions and feedback. Evaluation will be based on class participation, two response papers (graded pass/fail), one class presentation, and one final term paper.
