Political Communication Sessions

The political communication division will organize junior-meets-senior sessions. In this session, a senior scholar (the discussant) will meet with two junior scholars (PhD students) to discuss their research. The PhD student will send (a draft or shorter version) of their paper to the senior scholar in advance and during the meeting they will discuss the paper. To make the meeting more focused and to mimic the networking experience in scientific conference, the meetings are only open for the senior and junior scholars who are invited for the meeting.
