China and Asia-Pacific Studies Program
An innovative undergraduate major at Cornell University, CAPS is a program designed to train future leaders who are equipped to address the inevitable challenges and negotiate the delicate complexities in the various domains of U.S.-China relations. With four years of intensive Chinese language training and two semesters of internships in Washington D.C., and Beijing respectively, the unique and ambitious program offers CAPS majors unprecedented pre-professional training mapped onto a solid Cornell liberal arts education. 

Cornell International Affairs Review
Cornell International Affairs Review endeavors to provide the Cornell community with a medium to engage others in discourse on the most current transnational and international issues.

Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies
Cornell’s Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies (FGSS) Program is one of the largest interdisciplinary programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, involving approximately 150 members of the greater Cornell faculty, staff and Ithaca community. It is also historically one of the first university women’s studies programs in the country.

Institute for Social Sciences
The goals of the Institute for the Social Sciences are to encourage collaborations among social scientists across disciplinary and institutional boundaries, to engage the Cornell community--students, faculty, and staff--in discussions of cutting-edge topics in the social sciences, and to assist departments and programs in retaining top social science faculty and attracting new talent.

Political Theory Colloquium
The Political Theory Colloquium is a graduate student writing group committed to the development of writing in the political theory subfield. We meet regularly throughout the semester to read and discuss student writing at various stages of completion and to various purposes, including papers for publication, dissertation chapters, term papers, prospectuses, etc. The goals of this colloquium are evenly divided between (1) substantive political theory inquiry, (2) writing development, (3) specific disciplinary concerns, and (4) fostering a more robust intellectual community among Cornell students committed to political theory. We welcome any students who are interested in writing in the political theory subfield; those interested can contact Jordan Jochim for more information.

PSAC (Politics, Sandwiches, and Comments) is a workshop for work-in-progress (mainly) in comparative politics and international relations. PSAC seminars feature papers from Cornell Government Department graduate students and faculty and from scholars at other universities. These sessions allow students, faculty, and guests to engage in lively debate and discussion on diverse topics from different subfields of political science.

PSAC workshop seminars feature draft papers from Cornell graduate students and faculty, as well as scholars from other universities. We seek out work representing an eclectic mix of research methods, spanning the qualitative/quantitative and experimental/observational gamut. These sessions allow students, faculty, and guests to engage in lively debate and discussion on diverse topics from different subfields in political science.

All are welcome. Interested graduate students and faculty in any field are encouraged to join us. The workshop meets on Fridays from 12:15pm to 1:45pm. Unless noted otherwise, sessions are in White Hall 106. And as the seminar name suggests, each session features a light lunch of sandwiches, along with some chips, cookies, and soda -- and of course lively comments.

The Society brings distinguished Visiting Fellows and Cornell Faculty and Graduate Student Fellows together each year to pursue research on a broadly inter-disciplinary focal theme.
