Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Women are poorly represented in virtually all of the world’s governments. From presidents and prime ministers to city councils, the political arena is dominated by men. This class surveys women in government in comparative perspective to examine three sets of questions. 1) Where are all the women? Why are women underrepresented in politics? Which cultural, structural, and political factors shape women’s pathways to power? What challenges (and opportunities) do women face when running for office? Which types of women come to power? 2) Does it matter? Do women have a different governing style? What are the policy consequences of women’s representation? Is a representative government important for democratic legitimacy and citizens’ perceptions of the state? 3) How does change occur? What steps have policy makers taken to increase women's representation, and have they succeeded? How have women utilized critical junctures such as women’s movements, civil wars, and democratic transitions to increase their access to office?

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Grades for the course will be calculated as follows:

Class Participation (15%): Regular attendance is a key determinant of success in this course. The readings serve as a background, not as a substitute, for the lectures and class discussions. Having more than two unexcused absences will result in a grade of 5 for the course.

In addition to simply attending class, you are expected to participate actively in all class discussions. Full participation does not mean talking a lot. Participation entails
reading the materials, coming to class prepared to ask and answer questions
about them, offering thoughtful responses when appropriate, and participating in
in-class activities. If you tend to be shy, or nervous about speaking in English, please come and talk to me for strategies on how to overcome participation anxiety, as I ask that all students push themselves to participate at least once per course session. If you are talkative, that’s great! But, please leave some space in class discussion for your colleagues to jump in to our conversations.

Weekly Discussion Questions (20%): You are expected to read each assigned piece carefully and thoroughly. After carefully reading the work, you are required to generate 3 questions/comments that you will circulate to the class via Moodle. Your questions/comments must be posted each Thursday by 12:00.

Research Outline (15%): You will submit a two-page outline of your proposed research paper by 15 May 2020.
Research Paper (40%): The major project for this class is a research paper. This research paper identifies a theoretically driven question and, building on the existing literature, offers a plan for conducting research to answer it. It will take the form of an empirical journal article or conference paper and have a research question, brief literature review, hypotheses, discussion of the research method, variables, cases, and sources of data. It should also include a (preliminary) data analysis, discussion, and conclusion. This paper should be approximately 4,000 words, not including abstract, references, tables, and figures.
Your final paper is due on 30 July 2020. There will be no exceptions for the submission deadline.
Peer Feedback (10%): You will serve as a peer reviewer for another student. As a peer reviewer, you are expected to evaluate the quality of your peer’s work, and provide written feedback. The goal of the reviews will be to help your peers improve the quality of their paper. Your review should be two to three pages long. You will be assessed on whether your review (1) engages thoughtfully with your peer’s assignment and (2) provides concrete suggestion(s) for how to improve their paper. Your peer review is due by 15 August 2020.
