Working Groups

The Center invites area scholars to join several topical working groups for challenging and collegial discussion of interesting publications in their fields and of each others’ works-in-progress. Each of the groups meets one evening each month at the Center. Please contact the conveners if you would like to participate in one or more of the groups.
