Held multiple times a semester. Doctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and staff who are working on or have completed their prospectus present a dissertation chapter to a community of colleagues for the purpose of sharing their research and benefiting from constructive feedback. The dinner forums are informal meetings that are aimed at providing feedback for work-in-progress, and have also featured practice job talks and conference presentations.
The Dissertation Dinner is designed as a collegial event that provides a venue for sharing your research to interested students with shared interests. Our line-up for the Spring 2015 semester includes a talk from Marc Loustau in January, Nan Hutton in February, and Jamie Boulding from the University of Cambridge will present during his visit in March.
