Alaska Native Knowledge Network

Alaska Native Knowledge Network is re-introducing our monthly brown bag luncheon series.

Join us in person or through audio conference.

In-person: Gruening 503F

Audio: +1 866-245-8984 (no pin)

Each lunch will be an open discussion themed around key phases in a graduate student’s life. This is an opportunity to ask questions, share experiences, challenges, and solutions to the many obstacles that conducting academic research can present in a person’s life. Maybe more importantly, however, it’s an opportunity to get to know (in a non-class setting) your peers and their work and passions. Center for Cross Cultural Studies faculty will be on hand, as well, and a variety of guest speakers will be invited in each month to lead us through special topics based on our collective research needs/interests.


Wed. Oct. 18th, 2017 General Theme: developing your research question, forming a committee, and the GSP
