Special Thursday Conversations in Conflict Studies with Peter Castro- Associate Professor, Anthropology at Syracuse University’s Maxwell  School. 
Professor Castro will talk about his personal and professional change from a social science conflict analyst of international development and environmental issues to someone engaged more widely in addressing social and environmental conflicts, including at the policy and training levels with entities such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Near East Foundation. He recently received the Syracuse University Martin Luther King Jr. Unsung Hero Award.

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community.  The series draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served. Follow us on Twitter @PARCCatMaxwell, tweet #ConvoInConflict.

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.
