The Department Workshop is a forum for the presentation of work-in-progress by department faculty and graduate students. The Workshop meets (roughly) every second Friday during the academic year at 12.45. Lunch is provided for all participants. The paper for each session will be available at least a week prior to its presentation via email and a link on this page. We warmly invite anyone interested at the University or in the greater Rochester community to attend the Workshop.
Questions about the department workshop should be directed to the convener, Robert Westbrook, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
