America & Europe’s New Jews

November 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Smathers Library Judaica Suite a Talk by Cynthia Baker The word Jew has evoked a wide range of images and meanings over time, and it continues to do so today. In recent years, the phrase "new Jews" has been used in public discourse as a kind of critical lens through which to interpret issues related to justice, equity, and the politics of identity. An exploration of how this phrase is invoked, and in what contexts, can reveal much about the…

Why Didn’t Anyone Tell Me This? Publications and Academic Citizenship

November 16 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

216 Anderson Hall Berthold Rittberger For Graduate Students looking to publish: Every graduate student knows the aphorism "publish or perish." While there is (some) truth to it, most early stage researchers receive (surprisingly!) little systematic guidance on how to navigate the long and obstacle-ridden process from developing a great research idea to seeing it in print (ideally in a peer-reviewed journal). In the course of this process called ‘publishing’, we have to make a lot of choices that are consequential…

Do Parliaments Underrepresent Women’s Policy Preferences? Exploring Gender Equality in Policy Congruence in Twenty-One European Democracies

November 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Ustler Hall Atrium Jessica Fortin-Rittberger Abstract: Although there are considerably more men than women in most parliaments around the world, we know little about whether male-dominated legislatures neglect women’s policy attitudes. Our article addresses this gap by analysing the congruence of policy preferences between women, men, and their elected representatives. We endeavour to answer two questions: Are women’s policy preferences underrepresented in modern democracies? If so, which factors explain the size of the gender gaps in policy preference congruence? Through…

The Liberal International Order and the Rise of Nationalist Populism

November 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

216 Anderson Hall Berthold Rittberger Abstract: This paper analyzes how the post-Cold War triumph of liberal internationalism has contributed to the rise of nationalist populism. Drawing on the heuristics of historical institutionalism, we argue that the institutional order underpinning liberal internationalism exhibits self-reinforcing characteristics, which simultaneously provoke reactive, self-undermining, sequences by enabling nationalist populism. Liberal internationalism works on the assumption that certain basic sociopolitical questions have been conclusively settled. Free trade, humanitarianism, democracy, or the rule of law are seen…
