PS Colloquium Series-Undergraduate Discussion: Professor Francisco Cantu at the UO!

The Department of Political Science and the Wayne Morse Center’s Program on Democratic Engagement and Governance invite you to an open discussion for undergraduate students with Francisco Cantu, Professor of Political Science at the University of Houston. Join us on Thursday, February 16 in PLC 905 from 3:15 – 4:15 pm for the opportunity to talk with an expert!


Professor Francisco Cantu is a specialist of electoral and legislative politics in Latin America. His current research projects include detecting different forms of electoral manipulation in developing democracies; measuring the effects of vote-buying in Latin America; identifying the effects of perceptions on electoral integrity; and analyzing the consequences of elections in non-democratic countries.

This is an informal discussion without a presentation–just an opportunity to interact. Come by, ask questions, and talk with a political scientist!
