Fall 2016:

Columbia University International Politics Seminar

The Columbia University International Politics Seminars (CUIPS) provides an essential forum for faculty and graduate students to meet and discuss cutting-edge research in international relations. The mission of this seminar series is to bring the country's foremost junior faculty in international relations to present their work at Columbia. The series also creates multiple opportunities for graduate students to meet and discuss their research with invited speakers.

Comparative Politics Seminar

The comparative politics seminar meets every Wednesday at 12.15 in Room 707 of the International Affairs Building. The seminar brings faculty from other departments to present their work on topics related to comparative politics. In addition, it also allows for advanced graduate students in the department to present their work.

Critical Media and Digital Studies

This workshop aims to bring together scholars interested in interrogating the sociocultural and political implications of digital technologies’ growing scope and indelibility upon the public sphere, in particular, its impact upon marginalized communities. Currently, digital technologies are advancing in their capabilities and reach at a far faster rate than conversations and policies that challenge its implementation and effects, both short and long-term.

Political Economy Colloquium

The Columbia Political Economy Colloquium is an interdisciplinary forum where graduate students, faculty, and visitors in Economics and Political Science present work in progress in political economy.

Our meetings are on Tuesdays, 9:30-10:30 in 801 IAB. Coffee and bagels/pastries are provided.
