Welcome to the Ethnography and Social Theory Colloquium Series (EST). The EST colloquium is a Monday speaker series organized by a graduate student coordinating committee, consisting of the second-year sociocultural anthropology graduate cohort at the Department of Anthropology, Yale University. The purpose of EST is to create a space that engenders an intellectually dynamic and rigorous academic atmosphere for public debate and discussion, and also allows emerging and seasoned scholars to exhibit and experiment with new research and ideas. We invite scholars, researchers, post-docs, and advanced graduate students from within and outside the Yale community to share research approaches that emphasize connections between ethnographic writing, theory, and methods, especially those approaches that stimulate debate over innovation in anthropological praxis.
The 2019-2020 EST organizing committee includes Elena Adasheva-Klein, Lav Kanoi, Manon Lefevre, Kate McNally, Ben Slightom, and Nala Williams. Professor Doug Rogers serves as the faculty advisor. Please visit the “Calendar 2019-2020” webpage for more detailed information about the upcoming events.
