Disciplinary Punishment: Hegemonic Discourse, Ritual Pollution and "The Military Question" Robert A. Rubinstein is professor of anthropology and international relations in the Maxwell School, where from 1994-2005 he directed the Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts (now, PARCC). This Conversations in Conflict Studies will focus on the ways in which hegemonic discourses in peace and security studies, and related social science disciplines, privilege ideological commitments over empirical investigation when questions of how to engage military actors arise.

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.
