      Sharing & Experiences

      My time at the Institute has challenged me to re-think conventional boundaries, and explore new ways of relating the anthropological present to history and global connections. Outside of my thesis work, the Institute has also supported a more holistic idea of education — training its graduate students through active involvement in conferences, regular presentations, training workshops, and TA work. Throughout the year, the Institute hosts an amazing variety of talks, panels, and conferences, providing ample opportunities to learn about the actual “doing” of academia.
