Research Projects

The Asch Center is involved in a variety of projects related to ethnopolitical conflict. Please refer to our Research Agenda for an overview. Several current and recent projects are described HERE.



Research Seminars

Since moving to Bryn Mawr College, the Asch Center has continued the practice of hosting talks from affiliated faculty and other professionals whose activities are related to issues of ethnopolitical conflict. Speakers from the Boston -- Washington, D.C. corridor are invited to offer their latest research findings and theoretical proposals for engaging and free-flowing discussion.  The talks are co-sponsored by Peace and Conflict Studies and the Social Sciences Center at Bryn Mawr.
