Departmental Speaker Series

The Departmental Speaker Series features contributors from Queen's and beyond covering topics across all the fields of political studies. Since the series was introduced in the Winter term, 2009, we have enjoyed high attendance from faculty and students alike. For students, the series is a great opportunity not only to expose oneself to original research, but, as importantly, to take part in and become familiar with the practice of scholarly debate in the discipline of political studies.

Speakers for the upcoming year will be posted as they become available. Check this page regularly for updates.
