recognizing and appreciating a wide range of cultural and global perspectives
While surveying some of the most vibrant humanities scholarship today, the goal of the conference is to think critically about the contemporary practice of interdisciplinarity.
The program is divided into 5 different panels of interdisciplinary intersection:
Ambassador Susan Rice, the S.T. Lee Lecturer, will discuss her book, "Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For." This event is open to the public and books will be available for sale. Amb. Rice has graciously agreed to sign books after the talk. RSVP is required.
This workshop series is designed for Stanford graduate students interested in learning more about and developing their skills in community-engaged scholarship and community-based research. Invited speakers include leaders and practitioners across disciplinary fields. Sessions will be held over lunch. Please check the website for location confirmation: haas.stanford.edu.
Please RSVP here for an accurate headcount for food.
The What Matters to Me and Why series encourages reflection within the Stanford community on matters of personal values, beliefs, and motivations in order to better understand the lives and inspirations of those who shape the University.
All are welcome. Feel free to bring your lunch.
