Laura Stoker is Associate Professor of Political Science at Berkeley. Professor Stoker received her Ph.D. in 1990 from the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on the development and change of political beliefs, attitudes, and behavior, and employs data drawn from surveys and experiments. Specific topics include the moral, group, and self-interested basis of citizens' opinions on public policies; sources of short- and long-run change in citizens' evaluations of political candidates and public policies; and political influence within families. Recent publications include "Caught in the Draft: Effects of the Vietnam Draft Lottery on Political Attitudes" (APSR), "Of Time and the Development of Partisan Polarization" (AJPS), and "Politics across Generations: Family Transmission Reexamined" (JOP). She is currently co-directing a project on the persistence of political beliefs and attitudes over the life-cycle and their transmission across generations.

On Wednesday, May 7th, PRESS will be hosting a visit by Dan Butler, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Yale University. Professor Butler studies the behavior of public officials, both through observational and experimental work, to better understand issues of representation.
From noon to 1:30 in Robertson 020 Professor Butler will be holding a skills session on a new experimental technique he has used to test the responsiveness of legislators to their constituents.
From 3:30 to 5:00, also in Robertson 020, Professor Butler will be presenting a new field experiment which tests whether legislators are able to lead public opinion by communicating with their constituents.
If you are interested in attending either event, RSVP to Mia Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
