What should you call me? I suggest that currently enrolled undergraduate students call me “Professor Read.” All others should feel free to call me “Ben.”

Future courses

Later in the 2017-18 academic year I expect to teach: Poli 190t, Governance and Conflict in East Asia (winter); and Poli 140d, Politics of East Asia (spring). See below for previous syllabi of these courses.
