Working Groups

Interdisciplinary Consortium Working Groups

Would you like to collaborate with faculty and graduate students from different disciplines who share your passion for a focused research topic related to Latin America and/or the Caribbean? Would you like to participate in seminars, conferences, and professional development workshops with colleagues from both Duke and UNC campuses? How about inviting cutting-edge intellectuals in your field of study to your campus, publishing a paper or book with your peers, or practicing a job talk with a diverse group of professors and students? All of these possibilities exist when you join or propose a Consortium Working Group (WG). Each academic year the Consortium supports a limited number of WGs with funds from an Andrew W. Mellon endowment.
