GPS presents: Christine Mahoney Please join us for the next session of the Global Politics Seminar (GPS) a week from tomorrow, Friday, February 5th: Christine Mahoney (Assistant Professor of Political Science) will present "Building Civil Society from the Ground Up: Collective Action among the Forcibly Displaced," a draft article co-authored with Anirban Acharya (PhD candidate in Political Science). Lindsey Kingston (Social Science PhD candidate) will serve as discussant. The paper will be posted on Blackboard by Monday.* The session starts at noon in 100 Eggers, with lunch provided thanks to the Moynihan Institute. Those directly or indirectly researching refugee issues are welcome to stay after the formal session to discuss setting up a working group. Presentations in the GPS series feature work in progress. Topics can cover anything within the scope of "global politics" broadly defined. The goal is to provide a forum for constructive critique at a critical stage of revision, such as the transition from a conference paper to an article manuscript ready for submission. The next session on April 30th will feature the Moynihan Institute’s Project on Forecasting. * GPS papers are available on a secure Blackboard Organization site.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
