The Refinery is a forum for advanced graduate students to share work-in-progress with an invited scholar whose work is currently shaping their thinking. Both authors precirculate works-in-progress and papers are to be read in advance. The authors will kick off discussion by raising questions for one another and then we will open into a roundtable conversation.
To apply to lead a Refinery in 2022, please submit your proposal by October 15th here
