The GAFIS Graduate Student Symposium, now in its 24th year, provides a forum for intellectual and scholarly exchange in a positive collegial atmosphere. Interdisciplinary in nature, this national event gives future colleagues the chance to meet each other and to hear about current issues in upcoming research. Excellence and pertinence are assured through an anonymous and peer juried selection process.

This year's symposium, Articulating Communities, will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on April 15th and 16th, 2011. We seek to explore community articulation in cultural productions and, most importantly, how our work as scholars might further our understanding of the human condition and the interplay between individuals and their community ties.

Keynote Address by Professor Laird Boswell, UW-Madison "Minorities and Communities in France: Why the French don’t Recognize Minorities and how this impacts Communities"
