Interdisciplinary networks are at the core of the IAS’s work and mission: as a center, the IAS depends on bringing people together from different cultural, educational, and disciplinary backgrounds, of different ranks and standing from across and outside the University. As director, Jennifer Gunn has forged countless surprising and unexpected connections to help ignite and incubate new projects, programs, and initiatives. How do these ideas come to fruition? And how is interdisciplinary collaboration changing—especially as scholars engage with community partners to address some of today’s most pressing issues? As we look back at how Jennifer Gunn has increased the IAS’s capacity to incubate substantial collaborations, we will also look ahead to the future of what it means to do interdisciplinary work, and how these collaborations—with both internal and external partners—can help us build a just university together.

Following the event, please join us in Northrop’s 4th floor gallery for a reception.

IAS Thursdays at the Institute for Advanced Study brings ideas, conversations, and viewpoints to the heart of the University of Minnesota. Our events are free and open the public; IAS Thursdays are designed for scholars from all walks of life.

You will receive an automatic email reminder one day and one hour prior to the event with the Zoom link.
