The Social Citizen: Could You Please Take Out Your Checkbook?


Location: O'Shaughnessy Hall, Room 201

Betsy Sinclair, Department of Political Science, University of Chicago

Sinclair is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Chicago. Her research interests are American politics and political methodology with an emphasis on individual political behavior. She focuses on the social foundations of participatory democracy—the ways in which social networks influence voting, donating, choosing a candidate, or identifying with a particular party. Her other interests are broadly defined as those involving voting and elections and range from evaluating the consequences of different voting technologies to developing techniques to draw additional causal inferences in randomized field experiments.

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. Lunch will be provided.
