Speaker Series

Rockefeller College’s Speaker Series offers members of the University at Albany community an excellent opportunity for lively discussion and intellectual engagement with outstanding scholars from political science and public administration. Topics covered include a broad range of political and public policy issues of local, national, and global importance. Speaker Series events are open to all.

New Format: Rockefeller College Speaker Series is shifting to a new conference style format.  At least one week prior to the session, the presenters will post their papers on the Rockefeller College web site.  The session will begin with each of three researchers presenting recently completed research or a work in progress for no more than 15 minutes.  This will be followed by 5 minutes of discussion by each of the three discussants.  Although this is less time than most discussants are allotted at a typical conference, it minimizes the burden on discussants and maximizes the number of voices on the panel.  At this point (one hour into the session), the discussion will be opened up for questions and comments from the audience for the remaining thirty minutes.

The new Rockefeller College Speaker Series will be held twice a month in the 3:30-5:00 time slot on Wednesday afternoons.
