The Rackham Graduate School sponsors an ongoing program of interdisciplinary graduate student and faculty workshops. This program has two goals. First, it is designed to encourage exchange and collaboration among students and faculty 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.
Our faculty and students have coordinated the following Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshops:
