About SNID

Studies in National and International Development (SNID) is the longest-running weekly, interdisciplinary seminar series at Queen's University. Since 1983, SNID has proudly hosted prominent Canadian and international scholars who bring fresh perspectives to issues of local, national and global development. SNID has also organized several major workshops and conferences that have resulted in numerous publications. SNID serves a large, varied constituency of faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and community participants. 

During the academic year, SNID organizes weekly seminars, which are normally held on Thursdays from 1:00 to 2:30 pm in Mackintosh Corry Hall, Room D214. Please consult the SNID Lecture listing on this website for possible changes in dates and venue. SNID also regularly sponsors conferences, film festivals, workshops and other development-related activities, all of which are posted in advance on our Lecture Calendar.

All SNID events are free and open to the public.
