Description changed to:
Experimentalism in Theory and Practice (21347). 2 units. In the second term, students undertake with the instructor’s support group projects looking at the operation and prospects of experimentalist institutions. The goal is to understand in depth how such institutions emerge, how they function, and especially the problems they face and the (generalizable) strategies emerging for responding to them. Projects for the Spring, 2015 are likely to involve problem-oriented policing in Cincinnati, co-ordination of the extensive and complex efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem by Maryland’s BayStat, and, depending on developments, the shift towards an experimentalist form of regulatory harmonization in discussion of WTO 2.0. Students who elect to take the fall, theory component of the seminar have the option of taking the second half of the course in the spring or working with the instructor through supervised research on an agree-upon topic. Paper required. Enrollment limited to fifteen. Permission of the instructor required. C. Sabel.
Course Selection Information: Open only to students who were enrolled in the first-half of the course in Fall 2014. No new students will be admitted.
