Boundaries, Communities, and Identities: Race and Ethnicity Across the Disciplines

This graduate student research symposium will highlight research conducted by graduate students affiliated with CRRES and give the CRRES and larger university communities an opportunity to learn more about graduate students’ work related to race and ethnicity. The symposium will consist of a set of panels featuring broadly related research, where each panelist will give a 12-15-minute presentation on his/her work. Each panel will also have a Q&A session at the end of the presentations, giving attendees the opportunity to reflect on the content and provide feedback.
