Symposium Series 2015-2016
2015-16 CASBS Symposium Series: Evidence of Change
Symposium Series: Evidence of Change is an opportunity for CASBS friends to consider the work of leading scholars currently affiliated with CASBS. This year's focus is on those whose evidence-based reflections have changed the way they--and we--understand the world. The speakers document over-time transformations in government and governance throughout the world, racial politics in the U.S., and the nature of work. They bring to bear the best in social science with personal experiences that influenced their thinking and should influence ours. Save these dates and watch for our email invitations. Seating is limited and RSVPs will be required. For more information about the Symposium series, please contact Christy Duignan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
