RSS Culture, History, Politics Workshop

This workshop provides graduate students with an opportunity to share ongoing research with faculty and students working on issues related to culture, history, and politics. The main aim of the workshop is to assist students working in these areas through the close reading and discussion of papers written for publication in peer-reviewed journals, as well as grant, fellowship, and dissertation proposals. Faculty from the university and elsewhere will also be invited to share their current research on pertinent issues.

The Fall 2014 workshop, directed by Fatma Müge Göçek and assisted by Kelly Russell, will adhere to the following format: The presenter will circulate his/her paper a week ahead of time; this will be followed by a meeting on select Thursday afternoons from 1:30-3:00PM in the Sociology Library Room.  During the meeting, the presenter will first provide a 5-minute summary of the main points of the paper; a team of faculty and graduate student discussants will then offer a 10-minute discussion of the paper designed to raise questions. The presenter will respond, followed by an hour-long discussion of the paper among all participants.
