RSVP to Graduate Diversity Network - Journal Club
Students (graduate and undergraduate), postdocs, faculty and staff are invited to join in on the conversation for our Graduate Diversity Network's Journal Club. The GDN Journal Club meets quarterly to have our grad students or postdocs present papers and facilitate discussions that relate to diversity and inclusion, graduate education, and their professional development. The vision of the GDN is to strengthen graduate education through diversity, by facilitating communication and collaboration between people and offices in our efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In this upcoming Journal Club, we will be discussing two papers presented by graduate students surrounding the "Bridging Dialogues" theme. During this political season, we've seen many heated disagreements over challenging topics. But is it possible to create and build meaningful dialogue over these polarizing and divisive issues? If so, how? Our two graduate student presenters will provide brief summaries of their selected papers, and will lead discussions on this topics. We encourage attendees to view the papers in advance, and join us for this discussion.
