About Epicenter

Epicenter is an online source that provides original commentary and analysis on issues that transcend borders. The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs is committed to Harvard's tradition of fostering innovative, timely scholarly activities that help us make sense of the world.

We work  with academic specialists to help bring clarity to complex global issues. Our goal is to share the research done by Center affiliates—in academic communities and beyond—with a curious public. We extend the reach of our affiliates’ work through feature articles on our blog, multidisciplinary conversations on our podcast, and interactive maps and resources in our multimedia section.

The WCFIA has hundreds of affiliates—faculty members, graduate students, undergraduates, postdocs, visiting scholars, staff, and others—and they represent the widest possible range of opinions on almost every subject. Like the Center itself, Epicenter takes no position on any issue of scholarship or public policy, and we include many of these voices on this site.

Epicenter is managed by the Center’s communications team. If you have questions for the communications staff, please email publications@wcfia.harvard.edu.
