I’ve spent most of my adult life studying and teaching politics, but, as the title of this talk suggests, I did not set out to be a political scientist. I’ve actually had a few students approach me after seeing the poster, puzzled and maybe even slightly alarmed: What exactly do I mean by “accidental”? The only way I can explain it is to provide a little bit of my personal background, so maybe that’s where we should start.
