Research Workshops

The Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy Workshops provide an opportunity for Notre Dame faculty and graduate students, as well as occasional visitors, to present in-progress research on American politics and receive input and feedback in a casual setting. Workshops throughout the academic year are held on Fridays beginning at noon with location secured as available (times/place will be the same each week unless otherwise noted), and lunch will be served!

Exact dates and places are announced as they become available. If you have questions or would like to present a paper, please contact Rooney Center’s Program Coordinator, Lacey Barroso
