The first Spring Semester meeting of the PhD Colloquium will be this coming Monday at 5:30 pm in Johnson Center Room G. We are going to spend some more time getting to know each other and talking about progress through the program. If you have any issues about the PhD program that you would like to discuss, please bring them to this meeting. We will have time for open discussion.
We will conclude by 6:45pm to give people time to get to the Center for the Arts for Carol Mattusch's Vision Series Lecture (see below). I strongly urge you to attend if you do not have class on Monday night.
The second meeting of the colloquium will be on Monday, February 9, where we will hear from Professor Thomas McDow of our own history department about his work and about writing a world/global history dissertation. That meeting will be at our usual time 5:30-7:00pm in Johnson Center Room G.
A full schedule will be forwarded as soon as it is complete.
See you all on Monday. Have a nice weekend!
