We are proud to have Dr. Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate, is the Keynote speaker of the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program 40th Anniversary series. He will be speaking on April 21st 2011 at 3pm in the UBC Auditorium, where the University of British Columbia will  be conferring an honorary degree for Dr. Sen.  Ticketing information can be found bellow.

Amartya Kumar Sen is an eminent economist and philosopher. He is renowned for his work on the underlying mechanisms of poverty and famine, human development theory, welfare economics, gender inequality and political liberalism. He is considered a ground-breaker among late twentieth-century economists for challenging the notion of self-interest as the prime motivating factor of human activity. His work has helped re-prioritize a significant sector of economists and development workers, and shaped policies of the United Nations. In 1998, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his contribution to welfare economics.
