New semester, new opportunities

I’m delighted to report that as of September, I’ll be starting two new roles at Carleton University. In the fall semester I am teaching a seminar on Canadian Institutions and Governance (POLM5001) for the Clayton H. Riddelll Graduate Program in Political Management. The program is unique in Canada, offering a professional Masters degree for those wishing to work directly in politics as parliamentary assistants, ministerial staff, party organizers, or lobbyists. You can see the syllabus here and follow us on Twitter @CU_POLM5001.

For the 2015-2016 academic year I will also be a visiting researcher with the Bell Chair for Studies in Canadian Parliamentary Democracy. In addition to finishing my own dissertation research on All-Party Groups, I’ll also be helping Professor Jonathan Malloy with research for a new book on the Canadian Parliament. I’m very grateful to the Chair holder Professor Bill Cross for arranging the position.
