Representation & Governance: A Conference in Honor of David Mayhew

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 1:00pm through Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 5:15pm

"Representation & Governance: A Conference in Honor of David Mayhew" celebrates the extraordinary scholarship of our friend, teacher, and colleague.  The most fitting way to celebrate a life of teaching and fundamental research is to produce more scholarship and debate.  We have gathered intellectual leaders from across American Politics to continue the discussion of several areas in which David has made pioneering contributions.  We look forward to two days of learning and lively intellectual exchange on some of the central questions of American politics and democratic political institutions.


David Mayhew is Sterling Professor of Political Science at Yale University, and a resident Faculty Affiliate at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies and the Yale Center for the Study of American Politics.  In a career spanning almost a half-century, David Mayhew has established himself as a leading scholar of Congressional legislative behavior, American party politics, and U.S. public policy.  He was recently elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of the outstanding and influential contributions that David has made as the "leading scholar of American party politics today."

This conference is by invitation only and sponsored by the Yale Center for the Study of American Politics at ISPS.
