Continued service at the Comparative Research Workshop

18-months into my time at Yale, I am very happy to have made the Comparative Research Workshop a mainstay in my academic life. I greatly enjoy attending, and once a semester, serving as a discussant for one of our many talented speakers. This semester, on November 6th, 2018, I was pleased to serve as a discussant for my colleague Till Hilmar’s presentation, “Robustness of Social Ties, Robustness of Beliefs: Culture, Inequality and Friendship in Post-socialist East Germany after 1989.”

Invited to be a discussant for Yale's Comparative Research Workshop

In November of 2017, I was invited by Professor Julia Adams to serve as a discussant at Yale's Comparative Research Workshop. Specifically, Professor Adams asked me to respond to Sociology PhD student James Hurlbert's paper, "Enemies Foreign and Domestic: War, Rebellion, and Sovereignty in the Early American Republic," as I have a background in studying early American history. It was a great first time experience as a discussant, and I owe many thanks for the guidance and mentorship Professor Adams provided me. I look forward to doing it again soon!
