Please join us for an inaugural interdisciplinary research symposium for underrepresented minority graduate students to be held on Friday, May 19, 2017. This conference is designed to highlight the work of underrepresented minority (URM) graduate students and postdoctoral scholars including all intersectional identities within the URM community at the University of Chicago. The theme of the symposium, “Transcending Boundaries: Research and Scholarship in an Uncertain Era,” encourages scholars to reflect on our current political and social climate and how that might affect our research and scholarship in the present as well as the years to come. The symposium will feature a lunchtime keynote address given by Eve Ewing.
