Getting What You Came For: Conferences And Why They Matter with Kristina Williams and Ayanna Legros
Conferences are a vital part of the graduate experience as they provide students with the opportunity to engage with scholars outside of their home institution. However, many graduate students find they do not have the tools needed to navigate these spaces. This event is designed to bring together advanced and junior graduate students to discuss how to access and navigate both small and large conferences.
The first half of the workshop will provide practical tools and knowledge (i.e., applying for funding, organizing panels, avoiding conference burnout).
The second half will give graduate students the opportunity to practice the dreaded "elevator pitch" in a non-judgmental environment with their peers.
This event is open to graduate students of all levels across disciplines.
Lunch will be served.
