First Annual Interdisciplinary Humanities Symposium

The First Annual Interdisciplinary Humanities Symposium inaugurates a new tradition at Stanford.  The conference will highlight interdisciplinary work in the Humanities being done in Stanford’s graduate programs, and will also feature some of the most exciting work being done around the country, including keynote lectures by Niklaus Largier (UC, Berkeley) and Robert Pippin (U. of Chicago).  Planned each year by students in Stanford’s interdisciplinary humanities Ph.D. Minor, the Symposium addresses both substantive questions that cross boundaries between humanistic disciplines, as well as methodological questions, and the specific challenges and opportunities presented by interdisciplinary work in the Humanities within a rapidly changing university landscape.  This year’s meeting will present panel discussions among Stanford and external faculty, as well as featured presentations of the newest ongoing interdisciplinary work by Stanford graduate students in the Humanities.
