Politics Forum

 

The TCNJ Department of Political Science’s Politics Forum presents analytical and/or empirical research concerning political power, institutions and choices.  Students and faculty from diverse departments join to learn and comment on the presenter’s current research projects, which may be in completed or just in beginning phases.  Projects that cross disciplinary boundaries are particularly welcome.  Contact Nicholas Toloudis (toloudin@tcnj.edu) with questions or if you are interested in presenting your work.

Due to covid-19, Politics Forum will be held virtually until further notice.
