Graduate Research Cluster

Students studying together in a library

Graduate Research Clusters (formerly Graduate Interest Groups) foster crossdisciplinary collaboration and inquiry among graduate students in the form of cross-departmental reading, screening, and/or discussion groups, dissertation working groups, and other activities. Research clusters may organize activities that draw on local intellectual and cultural resources, including faculty and community leaders. To propose Graduate Research Clusters, visit Apply for Support.

Rethinking East Asia

This cluster will bring together graduate students from different academic departments and programs to explore various aspects of East Asia, especially boundary-breaking, cross-disciplinary approaches that challenge conventional and dominant mappings and theoretical frameworks.
