Professor Dawn Teele studies the economic and psychological factors that drive women to seek political office. In a new research project, “Nudging Women to Run,” Teele, along with scholars at Rutgers University, Yale University and the University of California Berkeley, surveyed alumnae of women’s campaign-training programs and is in the process of designing experimental innovations to encourage women to launch political campaigns. A leading authority on women and politics, Dr. Teele’s research examines the causes and consequences of voting-rights reform, forms of bias in politics and social-science methodology.
The Penn Lightbulb Café debuted in 2011 to illuminate University of Pennsylvania’s research in social science, arts and humanities. The lectures, held at World Cafe Live Upstairs, are free and open to the public. Each talk begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by an audience Q&A session.

Café goers can come early for 5-6 p.m. happy hour specials. Seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is recommended that you plan to arrive early.
