Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshops

The Rackham School of Graduate Studies sponsors an on-going program of interdisciplinary graduate student and faculty workshops. The groups to be supported should be self-organized by the participants, have an ongoing core membership, and meet regularly throughout the academic year. There should be an interdisciplinary goal or end product. As examples, you might consider increasing knowledge in a specific targeted area with the goal of developing a publishable paper, a conference, a grant proposal or a research project. We expect that most groups will discuss members’ work in progress and published scholarship on relevant topics, and they may include discussion with invited visitors; other activities may be proposed as appropriate.
