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, a weekly seminar series is the staple activity of SNID. These seminars are normally held on Thursdays from 1:00 to 2:30 pm in Mackintosh Corry Hall, Room D214 but it is recommended that you consult the Schedule on this website for possible changes in dates and venue. SNID is also a regular sponsor of conferences, film festivals, workshops and other development related activities, all of which are posted in advance on our Calendar. 

***As of the 2020-2021 academic year, all our events will take place over Zoom.

All SNID events are free and open to the public.

SNID lectures are available as a podcast in collaboration with CFRC here.
