Monkeys at the Zoo

- August 26, 2008

Under the fold, all of the APSA panels that I know of featuring regular Monkey Cagers. I _especially_ recommend Monkey Cage readers to turn up for my star-studded panel (featuring Paul Krugman, Nolan McCarty, Paul Pierson and Eric Rauchway) on Rick Perlstein’s new book on Friday at 8am – I will supply donuts or pastries in lieu of breakfast to the first dozen or so people to present themselves. I also note that John Sides is almost certainly personally to blame for the title of his panel as he has a criminal record as long as yer arm for alliteration in the first and second degrees (he previously inflicted the phrase “cloistered cocoons of cognitive consonance” on a jointly written paper with me and Eric Lawrence). Finally, readers should feel free to either (a) promote their own panels, or (b) recommend other people’s panels in comments as they like.
