Political Networks Online Colloquium (PNOC)
The Political Networks Online Colloquium (PNOC) 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. To encourage audience participation, PNOC will have a read-ahead format with no presentation. If you are interested in attending, please sign up either for the entire semester (https://forms.gle/Lj1QEFygNETkfKoQ7) or for a particular session (links below). For questions, please contact PNOC coordinators, Marina Duque (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Matthew Simonson (email@example.com).
