Behavioral Sciences Workshop

The Behavioral Sciences Workshop is an interdisciplinary seminar series featuring speakers of broad appeal in the behavioral sciences.  The workshop is held jointly between the Yale departments of Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and the School of Management (SOM).  It is cosponsored by the Center for the Study of American Politics (CSAP) and the School of Management’s International Center for Finance and the Lynne & Andrew Redleaf Foundation.

The workshop meets monthly on selected Mondays from 11:40 a.m. to 12:55 p.m.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workshop sessions will vary with some being held virtually on Zoom and some being held in-person or in a hybrid format during the 2021-2022 academic year.
