Graduate students at Washington University participate in reading groups and workshops across the university related to their research and interests. The Department of Anthropology houses a number of workshops that meet regularly throughout the academic year. These workshops frequently host presenters from other universities and feature the most advanced research and ideas that the discipline has to offer. Workshops are an important part of building intellectual community and fostering mentoring relationships among faculty and graduate students.
Graduate students meet regularly to share dissertation chapters, article drafts, and conference papers. Please contact John Bowen to get involved.
