This symposium is a learning occasion to reflect on interdisciplinary approaches to the humanities and the role of institutional centers in fostering such collaboration. In the morning, Kathleen Woodward, our guest keynote, will speak on disciplanary collaboration. After the keynote, we will have a catered lunch and an opportunity to meet fellow attendees. After lunch, the "viral culture" fellows will present the "viral culture" website. This presentation will lead into the roundtable discussion, during which the fellows will discuss their experience in the fellowship group and share the outcomes of their collaboration. The symposium will close with the Department of English's 10th Annual Peter Burton Hanson Memorial Lecture featuring Marjorie Agosin who will speak on the intersecetions of poetry, policy, and urban rights. The keynote, roundtable, and Hanson lecture will all explore the ways humanities scholars come together through theory, practice, and poetic expression.

When & Where
Northeastern Humanities Center
Building on Northeastern University’s tradition of linking scholarship and society, the Northeastern Humanities Center was founded in 2008 to foster conversation and collaboration among politicians and writers, philosophers and scientists, historians and health-care providers, journalists and entrepreneurs, artists and lawyers, researchers and practitioners, and others. The Center seeks to bring together thinkers who can help define the critical questions that need addressing and also respond imaginatively to topical issues as they arise. Through working groups, forum discussions, symposia, seminars, workshops, informal dialogues, conferences, and joint projects, the Center will support a wide-ranging interdisciplinary exchange of ideas in an atmosphere of respect for different perspectives, experience, and expertise.
