Faculty and graduate students are invited each academic year to participate in the Research-in-Progress Brownbag series. The series began in 2004 with CWS core faculty invited to discuss their current projects. Over the years it has expanded to include informal presentations by affiliated faculty, graduate students, visiting scholars, and other faculty members from across campus.
Brownbags run for one hour, including a question and answer session. Typically, talks are held on a Friday at noon in room 107a in the English Building.
