The CTCA Graduate Steering Committee is pleased to introduce The Friday Table, a series of weekly events aimed at facilitating community and collegiality. In Fall 2017 we ran pilot sessions of this project that demonstrated to us the benefits of regular meetings where we could engage with ideas that might not fall within the immediate purview of our research. For the Winter 2018 we would like to officially launch The Friday Table as an annual series held each academic year.

Each week a member of the CTCA Graduate Steering Committee curates or organizes a session, event, or excursion. The Friday Table will facilitate panels, film screenings, workshops, reading groups, artist/author talks, as well as ICSLAC and the CTCA’s popular Cultural Transfers workshops. For more information about our Winter 2018 schedule, please see our calendar of events or sign up to receive information about each event sent straight to your inbox.

The Friday Table is supported by the Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture. All events are free and open to all.

We look forward to working with the CTCA and ICSLAC to continue growing this initiative and fostering our community.

With best wishes,
Rebecca Dolgoy (CTCA Managing Director) and Victoria Nolte (CTCA Graduate Coordinator)
