Mainly for second and subsequent year research students and staff in the Department of Government and elsewhere in the School involved in research in political science and/or political economy. First year MRes and research students are welcome to attend.

Course content

The PSPE Doctoral Workshop/Work in Progress Seminar is intended as a setting in which Research Students from the Department of Government present and receive feedback on early stage and ongoing research projects. In weeks when research students do not present, LSE PhD students, LSE staff, and visiting scholars from other departments will present. The Seminar aims to foster a strong and lively research community and as such, welcome empirical or theoretical work linked in any way to politics or political economy.


The workshop will meet every week, totalling a minimum of 40 hours' meeting time across the Michaelmas, Lent and Summer Terms.
