19 October 2009
On Friday, 16 October, Margaret Levi did a video interview with Elinor Ostrom, the co-winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics. The interview, which will appear online once edited, complements the prefatory essay Ostrom wrote for the forthcoming volume of the Annual Review of Political Science.
Levi will also deliver a number of lectures in coming weeks: "Provoking Preferences by Inducing Beliefs: Transport Sector Unions in the US and Australia" at the University of Texas, Austin (19 October), University of Virginia (22-23 October) and Columbia University (28 October). These talks are from a book-in-progress, co-authored with John Ahlquist.
On 14-16 October, Levi chaired the review of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University, which Elinor and Vincent Ostrom co-founded.
Levi, with Audrey Sacks and Tom Tyler, has also published "Conceptualizing Legitimacy, Measuring Legitimating Beliefs" in American Behavioral Scientist (53: 354-375).
