Fall 2018 Work-in-Progress Seminar Schedule

Harvard FXB’s Work-in-Progress (WIP) Series will start the semester with a presentation from Dr. Satchit Balsari on recent Harvard FXB research with the Rohingya in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh.

WIPs are an opportunity for researchers to share their work while it is still in formulation. A WIP generally starts with a formal presentation, followed by a lively question-and-answer period. This fall they generally take place on Wednesdays, from 1-2PM, with Dr. Balsari’s being an exception as he will give his seminar on Thursday,  September 13 at that time. The Harvard FXB Center for Health & Human Rights hosts the WIPs in Room 710 of the FXB Building at 651 Huntington Avenue in Boston.
