ISPS events include seminar series and workshops, conferences, and special events.
ISPS Supported Seminars for 2012-2013:
Interdisciplinary seminars have been an important component of ISPS's programmatic activity throughout its history. These seminars generally involve several faculty members and a large number of graduate and professional students from a variety of disciplines, departments, and schools and the format depends upon the interests of its members. Seminars typically involve visiting speakers, discussion of published and unpublished papers, and presentation of seminar participants' own work. Attendance at some seminars requires advance notice, and some distribute papers in advance. Seminars are free and open to interested members of the Yale community.
Wednesdays, 12:00-1:15 pm, 77 Prospect St., Room A002. Sponsored by the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, each seminar features a presentation of current political science research by leading scholars in the field, including distinguished faculty from other institutions, research fellows of the CSAP, and Ph.D. candidates at Yale.
Wednesdays, 4:15-6:00 pm, 115 Prospect St. (Rosenkranz Hall), Room 202. The Political Theory Workshop provides an informal, interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of work in progress. The workshop features papers by Yale faculty members, visiting scholars, and graduate students in the fields of political philosophy, social theory, ethics, intellectual history, and related disciplines. Papers are distributed in advance when available and participants come prepared to discuss them in detail.
Public Policy Seminar
Tuesdays, 12:00-1:15, 77 Prospect St., Room A002. The Public Policy Seminar hosts preeminent scholars engaged in domestic public policy.
