The CRIMSL Research Cluster invites proposal submissions for our monthly workshop series for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their works in progress. This workshop series is an opportunity for emerging scholars to present research proposals and findings related to their major research papers, dissertation projects, and postdoctoral projects,as well as ancillary research relevant to cluster themes. Studentsand fellows may present drafts of their MRP, dissertation chapters, research proposals, book proposals, or other papers that they are considering publishing in scholarly journals, books, or other platforms for knowledge sharing and dissemination like online blogs. We also welcome submissions highlighting research-related projects that, while perhaps not resulting in “traditional” scholarly outputs, have supplemented and advanced your research in vital ways. This may includemultimedia projects, community organizing, advocacy initiatives, or public art installations.
Presenting your work in progress allows you to receive feedback from your peers, to inspire them through sharing your unique intellectual developments and research findings, and to promote collaborative construction of and collective accountability forthe knowledge we build.
To present at the workshop, please submit an abstract of 250 words or less addressing the following prompts:
1. What do you plan to present?
2. How do you anticipate that you and your colleagues will benefit from the presentation and discussion?
3. What kinds of further research do you think your work will help inspire and advance?
Please submit your proposal by December 1, 2021, to the administrative assistant for the cluster, Emiri Katakawa, firstname.lastname@example.org. The first workshop will take place in January 2022.
