Join us Friday, April 25, to hear IUB graduate students from across campus as they present their research on the ways in which race and ethnicity affect identity formation and impact the negotiation of physical, political, aesthetic, and (trans)national space. The Third CRRES Graduate Student Research Symposium will highlight research conducted by Indiana University graduate students interested in topics related to race, ethnicity, diversity, and migration. The Symposium provides the CRRES and wider IUB communities with an opportunity to learn more about the dynamic scholarship being done by graduate students at Indiana University. The Symposium will consist of a set of panels featuring broadly-related research, where each panelist will give a 15-minute presentation on his/her work. Each panel will be chaired by an IUB faculty member with a research focus related to the panel topic. All panels will be followed by a Q&A, giving attendees the opportunity to provide feedback and engage in a discussion with panelists.
