In 2013, the AGSU hosted its first symposium style Medusa event, which was open to all U of T departments, as well as interested students at other universities. The event was a great success, with presentations from students in all sub-disciplines. Faculty are welcome to attend, and students are encouraged to take this opportunity to practice conference presentations or present on their current research. Medusa strives to bring the sub-disciplines of anthropology together to discuss, polish, and add experience to student CVs in a non-threatening environment.
In previous years, Medusa ran as a student lecture series with one or more dates each semester. Some past abstracts can be viewed by following the links here: 2011-12 pamphlet 1, 2011-12 pamphlet 2, 2011-12 pamphlet 3.
Medusa abstracts and/or papers can also be published in our graduate student journal, vis-a-vis.
