GES Events


Mentoring Program:

A mentoring program for incoming MA and PhD students is currently under discussion. More details will be added as they become available.

Works in Progress:

Works in Progress is a venue for both graduate students and faculty to present unpolished papers -- literally works in progress -- to the department. The GES elects two Works in Progress representatives who solicit and select papers for this event. Works in Progress typically takes place once in the Fall term and once in the Winter term. This event is well attended and provides faculty and graduate students with the opportunity to learn more about their colleagues work and research interests.

Social Events:

Each year the GES hosts several social events where faculty and graduate students can mingle. The events usually include good food, drink and conversation. Some of these social gatherings include, but are not limited to, the Welcome/Welcome Back Party in September, the prestigious Snowflake Gala in December, and the end of term Spring Party.
