    RAND is pleased to announce the 24th annual RAND Summer Institute (RSI), which will take place in Santa Monica, CA, July 10-13, 2017. The RSI consists of two conferences addressing critical issues facing our aging population: a Mini-Medical School for Social Scientists (July 10-11) and a Workshop on the Demography, Economics, Psychology, and Epidemiology of Aging (July 12-13).  The primary aim of the RSI is to expose scholars interested in the study of aging to a wide range of research being conducted in fields beyond their own specialties.We invite all interested researchers to apply to attend the 2017 RSI. Applicants may apply for fellowship support to pay for travel and accommodations. Both the Mini-Med School and the Workshop on Aging are described more fully at our web site: http://www.rand.org/labor/aging/rsi/. The deadline to submit application and supplemental materials is March 1, 2017. For additional information, please contact Cary Greif (cgreif@rand.org).

  • Princeton University
    April 21, 2017
    Princeton University
    February 24, 2017
    In light of recent discussions about the resurgence of populism and backlash against globalization as manifested by the ‘Brexit’ vote, the 2016 US election, and similar trends elsewhere, we aim to bring together faculty and graduate students from Princeton University and other area universities for an interdisciplinary scholarly discussion of these issues. How (if at all) is this moment different from previous populist or anti-globalization movements? How have populist political and social movements, on one hand, and the processes and experiences of globalization, on the other, intersected in the past? What insights can historians draw from other humanistic and social scientific disciplines to better understand these phenomena?Accordingly, we are seeking proposals of no more than 500 words from doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences for brief presentations to accompany short (10-page), pre-circulated papers. Proposals are requested by Wednesday, February 24, and may be sent to emilych@princeton.edu. Papers may address any topic related to globalization and/or populism, but proposals should clearly articulate the question the paper aims to address. Some financial support for travel may be available for accepted participants. Proposals for full panels of three or four presenters are welcome.
