Lansing B. Lee, Jr./Bankard Seminar in Global Politics

The Lansing B. Lee/Bankard Seminar in Global Politics is a year-long speaker series that features leading scholars in International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Political Economy.

Invited scholars present cutting-edge research and engage in lively debate with faculty and graduate students. The seminar is made possible through generous grants from the family of Lansing B. Lee, Jr. and the Bankard Fund for Political Economy at the University of Virginia.

Dr. Todd S. Sechser and Dr. Gabrielle Kruks-Wisner co-direct this seminar.

Seminars are held most Mondays from 12:15-1:30pm.  This year, all seminars will be held virtually. The schedule can be downloaded here.
