The ICPSR Summer Program would like to invite you to join us for the following free Blalock Lecture tonight!
Frank R. Baumgartner, the Richard J. Richardson Distinguished Professor of Political Science at UNC-Chapel Hill, received his undergraduate and graduate training at The University of Michigan (PhD, 1986), and held full-time academic appointments at The University of Iowa, Texas A&M, and Penn State before coming to Carolina in 2009. Author of 10 books and editor of four others, he created (with Bryan D. Jones of the University of Texas) the Comparative Agendas Project and is known for his work on lobbying, policymaking, agenda-setting, and racial dynamics in the criminal justice system.
His most recent books include Deadly Justice: A Statistical Portrait of the Death Penalty (Oxford, 2018, co-authored with four UNC undergraduate students), Suspect Citizens: What 20 Million Traffic Stops Tell Us about Policing and Race (Cambridge, 2018, co-authored with two UNC graduate students), and Comparative Policy Agendas: Theory, Data, Tools (Oxford, 2019, co-edited with Christian Breunig and Emiliano Grossman, representing the current state of the Comparative Policy Agendas project). He has won numerous awards and in 2017 was inducted in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2019 he was recognized with the C. Herman Pritchett Best Book Award from the Law and Courts Section of the American Political Science Assocation (for Suspect Citizens), and with the Lijphart / Przeworski / Verba Dataset Award from the APSA Section on Comparative Politics (for the Comparative Agendas Project).
Frank is particularly happy to be invited for the Blalock lecture; his UNC office is just downstairs from where Hubert Blalock's office was, and Blalock was the author of his first statistical methods books in graduate school. As a 3-time UM graduate, his main regret is to do this talk by zoom rather than in person. His first major publication, following from his first academic job as a research assistant, was with Mike Traugott and Edie Goldenberg, his first employers in graduate school. This was published in Political Behavior in 1983. His Michigan graduate training included working for 3 years at ICPSR, working with Roy Pierce, Phil Converse, John Kingdon, and Jack Walker among many other fantastic mentors on the Michigan faculty.
