'IN TIMES OF NEED' STUDENT CONFERENCE- MARCH 13, 2009

Students at the CUNY Graduate Center Anthropology department are pleased to announce a conference inviting reflection on the politics, genealogies and epistemologies of ‘need.’

Conference is at 36th 5th Ave, New York, NY, in the Skylight Room on the 9th floor.
