September 18–20, 2014
This conference is closed to the public.
In 1984, Dean Henry Rosovsky and the founding benefactor, Ira Kukin, agreed on the terms for Kukin’s gift for the Harvard Academy. Since the founding, over one hundred Academy Scholars have been the beneficiaries of this unique concern for young scholars who combine social science theory with first-hand knowledge of non-Western cultures and states.
The Academy will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary with an Alumni Conference in Cambridge, opening with a welcome reception on Thursday, September 18. Panel discussions on Friday, September 19, and Saturday, September 20, will address “Religion and Politics,” “Democracy and Authoritarianism,” “Race and Religion,” “Self-Government, Representation and Sovereignty” and “Citizen Action and Engagement in ‘Challenging’ Contexts by Under-Resourced People.” A celebratory dinner Friday night highlights the meaningful, informative, and fun event.
