Center for Race & Ethnicity, Rutgers University
Friday, 24 February 2017
College Avenue Campus, Rutgers University- New Brunswick,
The Center for Race and Ethnicity invites Rutgers M.A. and Ph.D. students to take part in a cross-disciplinary conversation about graduate research related to issues of race and ethnicity in the US, the region, and the world. We encourage students from all levels of study and from all schools and departments at Rutgers, including but not limited to Planning and Public Policy, Law, Social Work, Education, Applied and Professional Psychology, Communication and Information, Management and Labor Relations, Public Health, Business, and Arts and Sciences to contribute. This event is part of the Center for Race & Ethnicity’s ongoing initiatives to promote interdisciplinary exchange and collaboration.
The graduate forum is designed to encourage scholarly exchange and feedback on your work in a casual and supportive environment. Graduate panelists will give a brief 5-7 minute presentation of their work. Formal papers are not required for participation. We especially encourage submissions highlighting developed original research and dissertation projects.
This forum will also feature an hour-long panel dedicated to professional development where scholars will discuss their experiences and insights on turning your dissertation into a book, writing proposals and applying for grants, and exploring non-academic job markets. A question and answer session will follow the panel. Lunch will be served.
Deadline for submissions: Friday, 20 January 2017
Submissions should include:
1. Your name, email address, department, campus, and year in school
2. Title of your presentation
3. 150-200 word description of your presentation and argument
4. Brief (1-2 sentences) biography
Please submit this information via this online form.
Organized by: Nafisa Tanjeem (Women’s and Gender Studies), Miya Carey (History), Tasia Milton (English), and Allison Harbin (Art History)
