We are pleased to announce a presentation by author Henry Milner in a new online session as part of the AASSC Virtual Series, which will take place on Wednesday, April 20 at 12:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM CST / 4:00 PM GMT / 5:00 PM CET.
Milner, author of Participant Observer: An Unconventional Life in Politics and Academia, will draw on his experience as a close observer of Nordic politics to share what he has learned about the relationship between participating in politics on the inside and observing politics from the outside. Several chapters in the memoir are set in Finland and Sweden.
About the Speaker:
Henry Milner has published nine books, the most recent of which is his political memoir, Participant Observer: An Unconventional Life in Academia and Politics, and edited four others. He has written numerous articles, both scholarly and journalistic, specializing in political participation and electoral reform, notably in Inroads, a journal founded in 1991 with John Richards.
He obtained his BA from McGill University and completed his MA and PhD at Carleton, also spending a year at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC. In the 1980s his interests took him to the Nordic countries and led to books focusing on social democracy in Scandinavia. Between 1999 and 2013 he spent each fall term as a Visiting Professor of Political Science at Umea University in Sweden, and in 2012 came to the l’Université de Montréal, where he is now Research Fellow at the Chair in Electoral Studies in the Department of Political Science.
