Open to all Sociology graduate students. The Lab will host an orientation for anyone interested in becoming an Ethnography Lab Fellow. Professor Javier Auyero and some current lab fellows will be there to discuss opportunities for participating in the lab, what it's all about, and our plans for the Spring 2014 semester. Lunch provided.

Zotero Workshop with Professor Daniel Fridman
Friday, January 31, 12:30 - 2:00 pm
Ethnography Lab Conference Room (CLA 3.214F)
Zotero is a free software that helps you sort your bibliographies, including your PDFs, as well as citing easily in your text processor as you write. The workshop will be very informal and as hands on as possible, so we ask that you bring your laptop. We will do one introductory session, and an advanced session one week later, after you have been able to try out Zotero. We recommend that you download the application before the workshop from: http://www.zotero.org/download.
