The Code of Putinism

Guest Speaker: Brian Taylor, Professor and Chair, Political Science, Maxwell School of Syracuse University. Professor Taylor will discuss his recently published book "Code of Putinism." This book explains the mentality of Putin, the people around him, and the Russian populace after the collapse of the Soviet Union and how that has impacted Russian politics over last two decades. His findings challenge the assumption that the Russian leader is a cold-blooded, calculated realist and presents an argument in which feelings, habits and ideas have as much of a sway on Putin and his decisions as do his self-interests.
Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served. Be sure to check out the full list of speakers.

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.
