Conferences

Marjorie Lehman and Jane Kanarek

Each year the Mandel Center convenes a conference that advances work in one of its major research projects. These meetings bring together scholars and policy makers--many of whom are involved in the research work--to advance thinking, generate new questions, and, in some cases, generate new work for future publication.

The Center also hosts other events for specific audiences.
