Conferences and Events

Jonathan Krasner presenting at a conferenceMCSJE offers a robust schedule of events throughout the year. Some of these are opportunities to share research findings, pursue scholarly investigations, and promote the scholarship of others to a broad public audience. Other events bring together scholars, practitioners, and policy makers to advance thinking, generate new questions and, in some cases, generate new work for future publication.

All public events are free but pre-registration is required. Learn more about upcoming events below or read about and watch videos from past events.
