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. (Note location change: 310R Renaissance Park). The keynote, roundtable, and Hanson lecture will all explore the ways humanities scholars come together through theory, practice, and poetic expression.
