Research Focus Groups

The IHC Research Focus Groups (RFG) program brings together faculty and graduate students with shared research interests from different fields and departments/programs to foster the development of interdisciplinary research agendas. Convened by individuals from at least two departments/programs, the RFGs meet regularly (at least three times a quarter) during the academic year to present work in progress, read and discuss texts and current scholarship, and/or plan and implement common research projects.
