CSII Graduate Student Working Group on Race and Immigration

The CSII Immigration and Race graduate student working group seeks to be a professional network for graduate students interested in immigration, integration, and race and ethnic relations research. The student group hosts workshops, discussion panels, and research presentations. To support our goal of being a community for scholarly development, meetings provide ample opportunities for the collaboration and sharing of members’ work.

Ethnography of Public Life

EPL is a workshop of scholars who study everyday life in institutional or informal settings, real or virtual. We use ethnography, perhaps alongside other methods, to research civic and political life, public space, and the public aspects of social problems. In short, EPL is a forum for sharpening our ethnographic research and writing skills as we study public life.
