Within this program are a number of thematic graduate working groups that are both interdisciplinary in their membership and student-driven in their design. Meetings are held roughly four times each semester, during which students are encouraged to share their individual perspectives on issues of a global nature. Often selected readings are discussed, and students have the opportunity to share their own research with the group in order to receive feedback from a variety of disciplines.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: to Wednesday, 20-September. Call for Proposals for the 2017 - 2018 Academic Year is still open!
The Duke University Center for International & Global Studies (DUCIGS) invites proposals for working groups at the start of each academic year. DUCIGS provides funding for expenses related to meetings - including food, readings and audio-visual materials. Groups can also apply for additional support for events during the AY, including workshops, symposia and mini-conferences.
