Graduate Student Lunch Series – Global Topics
Across the university graduate students at Rutgers are engaging in exceptional research that analyze international and global issues relevant to their fields. The Graduate Student Lunch Series brings together this community to foster dialogue and promote synergies between the various graduate schools at the university. As part of the series, graduate students from any discipline/campus meet to present academic work that has a global or international dimension. The series is an opportunity for graduate students to share their work with colleagues and to practice presenting papers. It also provides a forum for fellow students to network and learn more about the academic work and projects of colleagues.
The Graduate Student Lunch Series meets throughout the academic year. For each session, networking and lunch begins at 12:00 p.m. followed by a presentation and discussion. The research paper is circulated in advance to those registered to attend in preparation for the discussion. The discussion portion of the program often proves to be most beneficial to the presenter as fellow graduate students provide valuable feedback. The session concludes at 1:30 p.m.
The program is organized by a committee of graduate students. The program is co-sponsored by the Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs (GAIA Centers) and the Rutgers University Libraries. The lunch meetings are held at the Alexander Library on the College Avenue Campus. The networking portion of the program includes a brief overview of research tips provided by university librarians. Lunch is provided.
