Symposium Series 2016-17

symposium series

For more than six decades, fellows in residence at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences have explored vexing problems, extended knowledge of our world, and engaged in cross-disciplinary interactions that have led directly to breakthroughs in thought.

Each year CASBS is pleased to connect some of this extraordinary talent with public audiences. The Center's symposium series showcases current CASBS fellows and allows the public to consider their cutting-edge works-in-progress.

The 2016-17 symposium series continues this rich tradition. The featured speakers bring to bear the best in social science research with personal experiences that have influenced their thinking and should influence ours. Please watch for our email invitations for each symposium. Attendance is free, but seating is limited and RSVPs will be required.
