2017-2018 Anthropology and History Workshops
The Anthropology and History Workshop is a forum for the discussion of papers and chapters, usually in draft, by students, faculty and visitors. Workshop papers are distributed by email attachment to graduate students and faculty in Anthro-History and affiliated programs about one week in advance. The Workshop meets on Fridays, 2-4 pm, usually in 1014 Tisch Hall on U-M's Central Campus. There is typically a commentator/critic for each session, the presenter has a few minutes to set a context for the discussion of the work, with the remainder of the session dedicated to open discussion.
Workshop papers are available by request to firstname.lastname@example.org
