A Prospective Retrospective | The Successful Societies: Mobilizing the Social Sciences to Understand Collective Well-Being

November 1–2, 2019 

This conference is closed to the public.

This closed meeting (by invitation only) is an occasion for those who have been affiliated with the program to reconnect with old friends, share their research, and exchange around the intellectual impact of this interdisciplinary program on their work, past, present, and future. 
On Thursday at noon, there is a public launch of a special issue of Daedalus: Journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, which features the work of the program around the theme “Inequality as a Multidimensional Process” (coedited by Program Directors Michèle Lamont and Paul Pierson). Chaired by Jennifer Hochschild, this session stimulates conversation between members of our academic community and policy makers.

Cosponsored by CIFAR, Toronto, Ontario.
