Regular Series

Department Colloquium

The Department Colloquium speaker series is designed to promote intellectual community within the Political Science department, stimulate cross-subfield discussion among faculty and students, and facilitate student engagement with the wide network of scholars in the tri-state area. If you are interested in presenting your work or being a discussant at a future Colloquium event, please contact Ryan Brunette at rbrunette@gradcenter.cuny.edu

 

Comparative Politics Workshop

The comparative politics workshop is a venue for comparativists—faculty, students, and alumni—to workshop conference papers, peer-reviewed articles, or book chapters. Our goal is to provide a relaxed, informal, and collegial environment to share and develop our work. This workshop is a student-run initiative that relies on the support and energy of the GC comparative politics faculty, students, and alumni. For further information, please contact Javier Padilla – javierpmt@gmail.com.  The comparative politics workshops meet on Wednesdays from 4:00pm to 6:00pm (*subject to change*).

 

IRrelevant: The International Relations discussion forum

Students and faculty in International Relations are pleased to host series of extracurricular events: IRrelevant. Our goal is to bring together colleagues from any and all subfields with an interest in world politics to engage in an informal exchange, to learn from each other and to build our community. IRrelevant is designed to complement other activities in our department. We pose a question, state a prompt or identify a short reading and ask that participants prepare simply by reflecting on these. We focus on provocative and timely issues, covering the state of the world and the state of our discipline. We structure the discussion to maximize participation and informality. It is, after all, a complicated world. So let’s talk about it. We hope you can join us.

Political Theory Workshop

The Political Theory Workshop provides a forum for theorists to develop conference papers, book chapters, and peer-reviewed articles in a relaxed, collegial setting. The workshop draws presenters from across the US as well as faculty from CUNY and other NYC institutions. Papers are distributed in advance of the workshop. If you are interested in presenting at the workshop or being a discussant, please email gcpoliticaltheory@gmail.com.

The department is affiliated with a number of research centers, including the Ralph Bunche Institute, the Center for Urban Research, and the James M. & Cathleen D. Stone Center On Socio-Economic Inequality. See their web pages for ongoing events and details.

 

Society and Protest Workshop

The multiple crises of our age have upended past certainties. For scholars and social movement participants, these new conditions demand a culture of spirited collective deliberation and a critical reevaluation of past methods and objectives.

The Society and Protest Workshop brings together activists and scholars to forge an intellectual community committed to navigating this new terrain. We address questions arising from—but not limited to—the work conducted by social movements, formal organizations, civic initiatives, and mutual aid groups. We host public-facing panels and interactive workshops in which participants can sharpen their written contributions. Our aim is to foster the development of a critical scholarship that tackles the crises we confront head on.  If you are interested in presenting at the workshop or being a discussant, please email societyandprotestworkshop@gmail.com
