Workshops

The Rackham Graduate School sponsors an ongoing program of interdisciplinary workshops, which is overseen by Associate Dean Arthur Verhoogt. This program has two goals. First, it is designed to encourage exchange and collaboration among graduate students, faculty, postdocs, and staff who share intellectual interests but do not necessarily have an easily available forum in common because they have different academic affiliations. Second, it is designed to help advanced doctoral students form working groups that support the development of research projects and dissertation-writing.

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 2018-19 academic year are listed below with links to their unique websites.
