The York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) invites proposals for its Graduate Student Workshop series taking place throughout January to April 2011. This series represents an opportunity for graduate students conducting research on Asia and the Asian Diaspora to present their research in progress to graduate students and a York faculty member. This series is intended to be an opportunity for York students in graduate programmes in the social sciences, humanities, fine arts, natural sciences, and professional schools to get presentation experience and valuable feedback on their research in a friendly and supportive environment.
