Inaugural MEHAT Workshop: Wednesday, October 10th at 3pm

Dear friends and colleagues,

Please join us this Wednesday, October 10th at 3pm in Pick 218 for the first MEHAT gathering of the year, a roundtable with NELC professors discussing the graduate experience then and now. Some of the topics to be addressed include: How do political events and broader social changes affect the graduate school experience? How do broader intellectual trends shape our disciplines? How do we navigate the tensions between acquiring language skills and reading widely in our fields? How have students, their aims, and the academic world changed in recent decades? Bring questions of your own, and enjoy the stimulating conversation and sparkling refreshments. If you have any questions, or if you may need assistance in order to participate, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Maddy and Carlos, 2012-2013 MEHAT Coordinators
