Ample time will be allocated for discussion, allowing researchers to get feedback from other workshop participants. Work presented can range from proposed research to highly polished and complete projects. Graduate students are especially encouraged to participate. Email abstracts by July 15 to Nicholas Flores.
Eaton Travel Sabbaticals Program

Preference will be given to students who have a creative and well designed plan of unconventional study and travel in a non-traditional environment, especially those which would take place in the southern or eastern hemispheres.
