The School of Public Policy (SPP) has announced its spring colloquia, with faculty from across campus speaking on feminist theory and management, the opioid epidemic and campaign finance reform.

The colloquia provide an opportunity for SPP students and faculty to connect with other UMass Amherst colleagues and discuss connections between their research areas and public policy. The talks, which are free and open to the public, will be followed by a question-and-answer period. 

This semester’s SPP colloquia are:

• “Management, Organization, and Feminist Theory: Why Then? Why Now?,” by Linda Smircich and Marta Calás, professors in the Isenberg School of Management, on Monday, March 4, at 12:15 p.m. in Thompson 620.
