Dean's Symposia on Social Science Innovations

The ambition of these symposia is to both increase the level of deeply intellectual colloquy, exchange, and connection across the diverse units that constitute the division of social science, to reinforce our sense of common purpose in serving the academic mission of Harvard University, and to showcase our engagement with critical issues and problems facing society. We anticipate hosting one symposium per semester and posting the videos on this site shortly thereafter.
