The Program on Global Society and Security (PGSS) seminar, chaired by Professor Erez Manela, is a weekly seminar that meets from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays as a forum for scholars and practitioners with a background in security studies. Program fellows, scholars from Harvard and other universities, and practitioners present and receive feedback on their recent work. Topics span a wide range of security-related issues, broadly construed: armed conflict, international politics, institutions, law, and global issues. Each paper is distributed in advance of the weekly meeting to stimulate in-depth discussion. Scholars and practitioners wishing to join the seminar should contact Ann Townes.
