The Institute for Advanced Study collaborates with many groups and projects at the University and in the community, including these:

The Agri-food Reading Group 
This group is comprised of faculty and students in social science departments at the University of Minnesota. They meet regularly to discuss each others’ work and to read relevant work by outside authors.

The Dialectics and Society Workshop
They seek to understand the challenges dialectics has posed to various schools of modern thought as well as the countervailing currents to which it has given rise. A number of former IAS fellows, collaborative conveners and other faculty continue to meet regularly for workshops and reading groups.

The Making of Global Cities 
What are the economic, political and social processes that are shaping how mega-cities of the global South are being transformed, as they seek to become global cities? Began as an IAS collaborative in 2008-09.

Mexico-Minnesota Dialogue: Past, Present, Future
How can we understand Mexican-Minnesota migration through historical, contemporary, and future perspectives, and what does this migration mean economically, educationally, and politically for Minnesota?

The Rhetorical Studies Collaborative
The Rhetorical Studies Collaborative investigates the intersections in rhetorical studies across the disciplines of communication studies and composition. Its ongoing tasks are to undertake and promote research that moves beyond the departmental and disciplinary divisions that fragment the rhetorical tradition through presentation and collaborative review, to engage cutting-edge research in rhetoric, and to create conditions promoting undergraduate and graduate research projects which take advantage of the full scope of the rhetorical tradition.

Space & Place
Space & Place is a translocal intellectual and creative collaborative supported by the Institute for Global Studies.

Telling River Stories
Telling River Stories is a project of the University of Minnesota’sRiver Life Program that populates urban riverfronts along the Mississippi River with the stories of people who shaped the landscape and were shaped by it.

Transitional Justice and Collective Memory
Do transitional justice practices—e.g. human rights trials, truth commissions, reparations, vetting, museums and other memory sites, archives, oral history projects, photography and film projects—help to prevent or deter future repressive episodes or human rights violations?
