Interdisciplinary Groups

Faculty within ILS specialize in many thematic research areas, including but not limited to the following interdisciplinary groups. These groups are not degree granting, but involve faculty from degree granting departments affiliated with ILS. As an ILS student, you can pursue research in any departmental or interdisciplinary thematic area or you can define your own unique research topic.
