The goal of this series is to give our graduate students a better understanding of what it is like to be engaged in a long-term research project.
Professor Costello and Professor Ninacs will be sharing their methods and their own experiences in accumulating data and knowledge in order to pursue their ideas and to find answers to questions.
On the evening of Monday, November 5, English graduate classes, which begin at 4:30 p.m. and finish at 7:15 p.m., will be cut short so students from those classes will attend this session.
On that evening also English graduate classes, which normally start at 7:30 p.m., will begin at 8:00 p.m. so as to allow students to attend Professor Costello’s and Professor Ninacs’s discussion.
All other graduate students who attend classes on other days of the week are strongly encouraged to attend. These sessions are designed to help our students think about the process of doing research. The discussion should help those who will be going on to write a thesis and possibly to be engaged in Ph.D. work. Also the session introduces the students to the work of members of the graduate faculty.
Faculty from all graduate classes are most welcome.
