Join the Center for Race & Ethnicity’s 8th Annual
GRADUATE FORUM on RACE AND ETHNICITY
Friday, February 27, 2015
Center for Race and Ethnicity, 191 College Avenue, First Floor
The Center for Race & Ethnicity invites Rutgers M.A. and Ph.D. students to take part in a cross-disciplinary conversation about graduate research related to the study of race and ethnicity. Students from all levels of study (from 1st year graduate students to ABDs) and from all campuses and schools at Rutgers, including Public Policy, Law, Social Work, Education, Business, and Arts and Sciences, are welcome! This event is part of the Center for Race & Ethnicity’s ongoing initiative to promote interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration.
Panelists will give a brief 5-7 minute presentation of their work. Formal papers are not required for participation.
SHARE your research and receive feedback on a course paper, dissertation proposal, chapter, or poster in a casual and supportive environment. Well-developed projects and papers in progress are welcome.
MEET other Rutgers graduate students across schools, disciplines, and departments working on projects related to race and ethnicity. Each panel will be followed by informal, cross-disciplinary dialogue exploring future directions for research.
LEARN about how to navigate various aspects of the academy at a workshop led by faculty and advanced graduate students.
