Works in Progress: The Works in Progress series is a graduate run program in which students have the opportunity to share their own work in a professional and friendly setting. The purpose of this series is to help graduate students receive critical feedback as well as improve their research and presentation skills. Some projects to consider presenting would be seminar papers, prelim papers, dissertation chapters, or any other papers you wish to submit either for a conference or publication. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate. If you have a project you would like to share and receive feedback on, please email Manasa Gopakumar (email@example.com).
