Putting Information into the Hands of Those Who Can Use It

News & Announcements

What I feel now, and what I hope the CASBS community will come to share with me, is a sense of excitement as we reinvent the Center to meet the challenges facing social science today. I offer here a brief strategy to situate the Center as a key locus for the development of contemporary and cutting-edge social science.  Read more.

Speaker Series

As part of the residential environment, we have two speaker series:

The weekly presentations are designed to inform Fellows about the work carried out by colleagues and to seek points of cross-fertilization among different fields. These presentations take place at 11:00 AM on Wednesday (and occasional Mondays), and continue to 12:00 PM. 30 minutes will be allowed for the presentation with the remainder of the time devoted to question and answer. Lunch will follow immediately after each session, which is intended to encourage informal discussion of the issues that were addressed.

Attendance to the residents' presentations are by invitation only.
 

The CASBS Symposium Series features a distinguished scholar, drawn from the ranks of the Center's current fellows. The speaker will give a short presentation followed by an exchange of ideas with the audience participants. The series is open to the public.  

We encourage advance registration as space is limited for these exciting events. If you'd like to be on our distribution list send an email with your full name to friends@casbs.org.

Please check our General Calendar for other events.

A key part of the mission of CASBS is to make findings in behavioral science easily accessible. For many years, scientists have made profound discoveries about behavior and the mental and emotional events that give rise to it, in individuals and in groups. We seek to identify important discoveries, bring them out of the laboratory and classroom, and interpret their import so that they can be used by non-specialists.
