ISPS Supported Seminars for 2014-2015:
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 Seminars typically involve visiting speakers, discussion of published and unpublished papers, and presentation of seminar participants' own work.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.
Thursdays, 12:00-1:15 pm, 77 Prospect St., Room A002. Co-sponsored by the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for the International and Area Studies at Yale and the Yale Center for the Study of American Politics at ISPS (CSAP), and focusing on quantitative research methods and cutting edge research projects in the various fields of the social sciences and biostatistics.
