Work in Progress: "Networks and Information: Evidence on Political Participation in Mozambique"

-

Pedro Vicente

Pedro Vicente
2017–18 Kellogg Visiting Fellow
Associate Professor of economics at Portugal’s Nova School of Business and Economics, Universidade Nova de Lisboa,

Political accountability requires electoral participation and informed voters. Both have been lagging in Mozambique. We designed and implemented a field experiment during the Mozambican municipal elections of 2013. We study the impact on political participation of social influence through text messages (SMSs), and of information provided through a free newspaper. We randomly assign peers to experimental subjects in order to test for homophily. Measurement of political participation comes from behavioral measures related to the sending of SMSs by subjects, from several individual measures of voter turnout based on survey information, and from the replication of the voting procedure. We follow a pre-analysis plan when showing our results. We find positive average effects of the SMSs on political participation, but no clear evidence of homophily. We do not find effects of the distribution of the newspaper, but positive interaction effects between SMSs by peers and newspaper distribution.…

Lecture: "Towards a New Biography of Dante Alighieri"

-

Location: Rare Books and Special Collections, Hesburgh Library

Paolo Pellegrini received his Ph.D. in Philology of Italian Literature. He has been a tenured assistant professor in Italian philology and linguistics (SSD 10/F-3) at Università di Verona, Department of Cultures and Civilizations, licensed to the role of Full Professor in 2017. His talk will concern Dante's biography. New documents and a new and deeper way of studying Dante's works, their texts and their historical and cultural context carried on by younger scholars is disclosing a different biographical perspective: it is time to write a new life of Dante which could take into account and exploit previous studies which have looked at Dante's life.
