Working Groups

Interdisciplinary Consortium Working Groups

Established in 1990, the Working Groups program provides an environment in which to foster graduate student mentorship, promote inter-disciplinary collaboration, and encourage the production and dissemination of new knowledge. The Working Group format is usually structured around monthly discussion/study sessions, public talks, and workshops, often with invited guest speakers. Membership in Working Groups consists of UNC-Duke faculty and graduate students representing the social sciences, humanities and the professional schools. Each academic year the Consortium supports a number of Working Groups with funds from the Andrew W. Mellon endowment.
