The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies will host a conference on "Bridging Disciplines, Spanning the World: Approaches to Identities, Institutions and Inequalities" Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, on the third floor of the Frist Campus Center.
The conference is intended to offer an opportunity for graduate students pursuing scholarship in international and regional studies to move beyond the disciplinary boundaries that structure their approaches and thoughts, and to engage in interdisciplinary interaction and conversation on a range of salient political, social and other issues.
Sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Saturday, and are open to the public.
Cosponsors of the event include the Program in African Studies, Advisory
Committee for the Fund for Canadian Studies, Program in Judaic Studies, Russian
Studies Program and Graduate School. For more information, visit the conference
