We hope you will take advantage of the scholarly communities and stimulating activities that these groups will offer over the coming year!
The Graduate Student Working Groups are supported under the auspices of the Ross Lecture Series. Geared toward facilitating graduate student engagement of specific topics within their area of interest, the working groups support an intellectual program that provides training opportunities and collective activities. These activities include an ongoing seminar and at least one public lecture, delivered by a significant person in the relevant field, that is included in the menu of yearlong Ross lectures.
In the working groups, graduate students take the initiative by identifying themes and potential participants, and mobilizing interest among the faculty with whom they are associated. Faculty and graduate students work collaboratively in planning activities.
Students interested in comparative historical methodologies may also want to consider the quarterly offerings of the Comparative Social Analysis Seminar (Sociology 237).
