LER 558 Seminar Series

LER 558 is a weekly seminar series that provides PhD students with exposure to cutting-edge research being conducted by leading scholars from around the world.

In this series, invited scholars present work coalescing around the advancement of social science and industrial relations theory, novel research methodologies, and other contemporary issues. Additionally, PhD students are required to present their own research during the seminar at least twice during their campus residency. In sum, LER 558 ensures that the School’s Ph.D. students are prepared to make a positive scholarly impact in their own careers.

The LER 558 Seminar Series typically meets on Fridays from noon-1:30 p.m. Unless otherwise noted, all seminars are held in the Wagner Education Center (35/43 LER). Seminars are open to the public.
