Inequality Discussion Group

This biweekly* discussion group brings together Cornell faculty and graduate students from around campus to discuss and improve their in-progress research. Lunch is provided. Inequality Discussion Groups in Spring 2019 will be held on Tuesdays.

Graduate students: Please sign up for SOC 5190: Workshop on Inequality for the spring semester. This is the same as the CSI discussion group, but it will now be a 1-credit class, as it was in the 2016/2017 academic year. The “course” will be s/u, and little will change from the current discussion group structure. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Weeden.

11:45 am-1:00 pm
Uris Hall 360 (CSI Conference Room)
