The Medusa Graduate Student Symposium (formerly known as the Medusa Lecture Series) is an annual event hosted by the Anthropology Graduate Student Union at the University of Toronto, St. George campus, since 2011. Medusa is a forum for graduate students to present paper or reviews of their research and is intended to provide both internal and external students with early-career conference and networking experience in a collegial and interdisciplinary environment. Generally, participants come from universities across eastern Canada and the United States, with many presenting their research for the first time.
Medusa is an important plank of the AGSU’s mandate, and marks a highly anticipated event in the calendars of graduate students in our department and across the University of Toronto. This event attractes anthropologists from every sub-discipline across the University of Toronto, as well as from other universities.
