The biennial Graduate Group Student Symposium is one of the Graduate Group's significant shared enterprises at Bryn Mawr. Organized entirely by students, these ambitious symposia attract graduate students from all over the United States and from other countries to contribute papers on such interdisciplinary themes as, "Feed Your Head: Food as Material and Metaphor" (2011); "Thievery: The Anxiety of Influence and Appropriation" (2009); and "To the Ends of the Earth: Journeys Ancient to Modern" (2007).

This year's symposium is sponsored by the Graduate Group, the Center for Visual Culture, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Classical & Near Eastern Archaeology, the Department of Greek, Latin, & Classical Studies, and the Department of History of Art.
