Graduate Colloquium

Held once a month on Thursdays (6-8pm), the Graduate Colloquium curates a generative intellectual space in which to discuss emerging themes in cultural anthropology around ethnography. Framing the colloquium is the Ethnography Workshop’s central provocation: an interest in ethnography as experimental as well as documentary. Each colloquia centers around the in-progress work of the Ethnography Workshop Fellows, and unfolds as a conversation in response to their work. For those interested in ethnographic scholarship, the colloquia provides a vibrant space to explore, discuss, and forward these conversations.

Works are pre-circulated 7-10 days in advance, and the event is open to all. Please RSVP to Joella Bitter at joella.bitter@duke.edu to receive the pre-circulated work and for food ordering purposes. The Graduate Colloquium is held in Friedl Building, Room 225.
