New faces in political methodology

Burt Monroe alerts me to this conference at Penn State on May 3. That bald guy looks pretty scary! New faces, indeed. Also, I’ll have to find out from Eduardo what he’s doing on “The Political Consequences of Malapportionment.” It sounds like it might be related to our project on representation and spending in subnational units. (The short story: low-population areas are overrepresented in legislatures around the world–the U.S. Senate is not the only serious offender–and these areas also get more than their share of government spending.) The conference seems like a great idea.

    The photo is out of date anyway, I look far less scary with the full beard I have now.

    Cheers,

    Benjamin Lauderdale (the bald guy) also does some really cool research on the connection between politics and health indicators, a seriously underrepresented area of research in poly sci.
