Announcing the 2021–2022 IAS Research and Creative Collaboratives!

We are delighted to announce the IAS Research and Creative Collaboratives for 2021–2022.

These self-initiated groups represent some of the most innovative work at the University. Their work—be it the development of a performance piece, the exploration of a concept or research area through different disciplines, or the creation of a supportive intellectual community—exemplifies synergistic interdisciplinary activity, and transcends departmental structures. We are thrilled to support this work!

 

Emerging Immigration Histories of the Pandemic

Apr 26 2021 | 4:00 - 5:00pm

We are still beginning to understand the full impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the United States, but it is already clear that the disease has disproportionately affected immigrant, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Many are at the frontlines of "essential" industries and have been at greater risk of infection and mortality. Some have been in industries that have shut down or greatly contracted during the pandemic. Others have been at the forefront of increased PPE distribution and vaccine development.

We are delighted to announce the IAS Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows for 2021–2022. 

 

Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows spend a year in residence at the IAS.

We look forward to welcoming each of these scholars to our fellows community!
