CERLAC Brown Bag Seminar Series for Grad Students looks at research quandaries

Are you a graduate student doing research related to Latin America and/or the Caribbean? Are you interested in hearing about the different projects of York grad students? The Centre for Research on Latin America & the Caribbean (CERLAC) is hosting a Brown Bag Seminar Series for Grad Students, with the first talk on Wednesday.

Grad student Stacey Gomez will discuss approaches to activist research and her work on indigenous women’s resistance to a mining project in Guatemala on Feb. 27. Everyone is welcome to attend Cerlacbetween noon and 2pm at the 8th Floor Lounge, York Research Tower, Keele campus. Bring a lunch, learn about new research, share advice and socialize.

It’s a great way to get feedback from your colleagues in an informal setting and to meet other graduate students with similar interests.

CERLAC has lined up other research associates to present their work over the next few months to share thoughts and challenges of research experiences. CERLAC is also looking for more students to share their research questions and quandaries as part of future Brown Bag Lunch events.

Anyone interested in presenting should e-mail sonjakm@yorku.ca.

Save the date for the next monthly Brown Bag seminars – March 20, April 10, May 8. Summer dates to be determined.
