Working Groups


In consultation with involved departments and colleges, drawing upon our faculty's expertise, and in accordance with the university's mandate to educate students as engaged and responsible global citizens, CLAS determined the strategic relevance of four thematic foci: Poverty and Inequality, Migration and Transnationalism, Postcolonialism and the Lusophone World, and Changing Climate, Landscapes, and Prospects for Justice. Lecture series, symposia, workshops, and publications will be aligned with the curricula and faculty research agendas. These four interdisciplinary working groups of faculty, staff and students, led by experts in the field, serve to galvanize academic activities directly connected to our graduate and undergraduate programs.
