We are pleased to announce the Fall 2023 schedule of the Political Networks Online Colloquium.
What is the PNOC? We aims to bring together a community of scholars to provide feedback on ongoing research about political networks. Each month we will meet for one hour to discuss one paper, which will be assigned two discussants.
What does a session of the PNOC look like? To encourage audience participation, the Colloquium uses a read-ahead format with no presentation.
How can I submit a paper to the PNOC? We have already chosen the papers for the Fall, but watch for our Spring 2024 call for papers which we will circulate in January.
How can I participate in a scheduled session? See the fall schedule, below. If you are interested in a specific session, use the registration link to obtain the information needed to join the Zoom session.
How can I make sure to receive updates about the PNOC? If you wish to receive emails about the PNOC, sign up at this link.
Who should I contact if I have additional questions, ideas, or other comments? Please contact the Colloquium coordinators, Marina Duque (email@example.com) and Matthew Pietryka (firstname.lastname@example.org).
