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:

  • Lit + Theory/Philosophy
  • Lit + Visual Culture
  • Lit + Science & Technology
  • Lit + Law
  • Lit + Politics

As they present their work, distinguished speakers and emerging voices discuss their current research, sharing ways of combining the methods and frameworks of different—and sometimes conflicting—modes for organizing the production of knowledge.

Open to the Stanford Community
