The MAMES Forum is a monthly student discussion group. Each month a PhD candidate or MA thesis student is chosen to lead a discussion on a current phenomenon in an area of her expertise.
Optional reading materials are distributed to MAMES students in advance. All MAMES students are encouraged to participate in the discussion.
PhD candidates and MA thesis students are welcome to pitch ideas for Forum discussion topics to Academic Affairs Coordinator Shoshi Shmuluvitz (email@example.com).
