Open Steering Committee Meeting
Open for all graduate students to attend
In an effort to better highlight and celebrate the wonderful work by American Studies students, faculty, and alumni we are launching Last Friday, a monthly newsletter for our program.
As the name suggests, the newsletter will go out on the last Friday of each month during the academic year, an apt moment to reflect on the events of the past month and signal the activities in upcoming weeks.
Please make sure to use the link below for submissions. Be sure to send news/events you wish to announce or you may email Brandi. We don't want to miss anything!
