Workshops

Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshops (RIWs) are designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and collaboration among students and faculty who share intellectual interests but come from different academic affiliations. Additionally, RIWs are designed to help advanced doctoral students form working groups that support the development of research projects and dissertation-writing. The active workshops for the 2017–18 academic year are listed below with links to their unique websites.
