Subject: Toronto Political Behaviour Workshop

Dear Colleagues,

Following on the success of last year’s inaugural event, Peter Loewen, Scott Matthews and I are pleased to announce the second annual Toronto Political Behaviour Workshop, taking place November 7-8, 2014 at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.

Our ambition with the TPBW is to create a new venue for the presentation and discussion of cutting edge research in the area of political behaviour, broadly defined.

The format is somewhat different from the standard large conference. The number of papers is small (this year we have eight over two days) and the amount of time devoted to each paper is large (at least an hour). We have no registration fee and this year we are also including a session on text-as-data methods, led by Arthur Spirling and Erin Baggott, Harvard University.

With this design, we hope that the TPBW will be as attractive to those in the audience discussing the work as it is to presenters.

Space is limited, so we encourage those interested in attending to register quickly. You can find the program and the registration form here: http://rubenson.org/events/tpbw14/

Should you have any questions, please contact either myself or Peter (peter.loewen@utoronto.ca).

We want to thank the following for generous sponsorship of the TPBW: The Department of Political Science and the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto; the Department of Politics, Faculty of Arts and Office of the Vice President Research and Innovation, Ryerson University; and the Canadian Opinion Research Archive.

We hope to see you in Toronto this November.

Daniel, Peter and Scott
