Looking at Scholarly Issues from Diverse Angles: Graduate Working Groups on Global Issues Panel

November 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Grad Working Groups

Speakers: 2017-2018 International Graduate Working Groups

A panel of students from selected working groups in the 2017-2018 academic year will present work they have been doing during the Fall semester and share their plans for the Spring.

For the past two decades, the Duke University Center for International & Global Studies (DUCIGS) has supported the formation of interdisciplinary, student-driven working groups that meet throughout the academic year to discuss a wide range of topics on global themes. These working groups produce mini-conferences, symposia and workshops, as well as print and online newsletters in which their international research is displayed. Graduate students are encouraged to share their scholarly writings and receive feedback from a wide array of disciplinary perspectives within their groups. This year Africa Initiative and India Initiative are also co-sponsoring some of the working groups with DUCIGS.

This event is presented by the John Hope Franklin Center, and Duke University’s Center for International and Global Studies. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd. and Erwin Rd. parking decks. The series provides 1 hour parking vouchers to guests.
