Wilson Institute’s Brown Bag Workshops:

The Brown Bag Series returns this year under its new format. The idea behind these workshops is to provide students and faculty members a very light and casual setting where they can present work-in-progress – thesis/dissertation/book chapters, articles, or conference papers – for a first round of comments and feedback. If anyone wishes to workshop a paper, you can contact us and together we will organize a group and workshop. Dates, times, and locations will depend on the availability of the group we put together.

2017/18 Schedule:
