IAS Collaboratives at the Interdisciplinary Graduate Commons

Friday, February 13, 1:30-3:00pm
140 Nolte Center

The Interdisciplinary Commons is a new Graduate School initiative intended to foster graduate student interactions across disciplines. Offered on a trial basis during the 2014-15 academic year, The Interdisciplinary Commons will provide space in the Nolte Center for graduate students with interdisciplinary scholarly, research and creative interests to study, make connections with students in other fields, discuss and develop their ideas, collaborate on projects, present papers and dissertation chapters to peers, and network and learn from faculty, professional staff and other graduate students about a variety of topics related to interdisciplinary inquiry.

On the 13th, the IAS will sponsor a showcase of collaborative work, which will both demonstrate the range of interdisciplinary work being done at the U and also offer interested grad students a chance to learn about and possibly get involved in IAS collaboratives. A number of the 2014-15 IAS Collaboratives will be represented. Each collaborative group will have a table area where its members can engage with students as they meander through the room. At intervals, collaboratives will give more formal 5-minute presentations. Collaborative conveners will talk about their group’s aims and activities and how graduate students might participate in or add to the collaborative’s work.
