Research Focus Groups
The CRFS Research Focus Groups (RFG) program aims at bringing together faculty and graduate students with shared research interests from different colleges, fields, departments, and programs to foster the development of interdisciplinary research agendas. Convened by individuals from at least two departments/programs, the RFGs meet regularly (at least three times a semester) during the academic year to present works-in-progress, read and discuss texts and current scholarship, and/or plan, develop and implement common research projects. Calls for proposals are solicited by CRFS once per year.
CRFS considers requests for co-sponsorship of events both on campus and in the broader community. Requests for co-sponsorship should be submitted by email to email@example.com.
