The Center sponsors a diverse array of seminars, conferences, programs, and projects that involve resident affiliates, a variety of international scholars, government officials, and representatives of the private sector. The results of Center research are made available to the public and to the policy making community through the Center’s online database collection of published research, and the publication of the Centerpiece and Epicenter newsletters, as well as books and special reports. The Center also produces an annual report that summarizes the Center's activities of the past academic year.
The Center’s online newsletter, Centerpiece, is produced twice a year. It regularly features information on Center events and scholarly developments of special note, as well as a column by the Center Director. The newsletter also includes updates on the Center’s programmatic initiatives, articles by Faculty Associates, and profiles of Center affiliates and their research. Centerpiece aims to maintain an enduring network of both current Weatherhead Center affiliates and the Center’s alumni. Links to PDFs of previous newsletters can be found on the right-hand menu of this page. If you are a current or former affiliate of the Center and would like to inquire about writing a feature article for the newsletter, please contact Kristin Caulfield, manager of communications.
