Forward Fest "Thinking Forward: Bringing Themes Together"

Over the course of A Year of Forward Thinking, Princeton researchers and alumni alike have shared the ideas that are motivating progress and transforming their fields. Join us for the final event in the online Forward Fest series to revisit the themes discussed over the past nine months and see how they intersect in Princeton’s interdisciplinary ecosystem. Featured in the program will be Allison Carruth, Professor of American Studies and the High Meadows Environmental Institute; Céline Gounder ’97, M.D., ScM, FIDSA, Infectious Disease Specialist, Epidemiologist, and CEO of Just Human Productions; Eric Gregory, Professor of Religion and Chair of the Council of the Humanities; and Laurence Ralph, Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director of the Center on Transnational Policing. 

The program “Thinking Forward: Bringing Themes Together” will be livestreamed on University social media channels. Those who RSVP will also have the opportunity to join a private Zoom session to speak live with participants as part of the program, get updates on other forward-thinking content, and receive a reminder before the Forward Fest begins.

Forward Fest is a monthly online series that continues throughout A Year of Forward Thinking. The event features Princeton faculty and alumni exploring a range of forward-thinking topics. Sparking dialogue among the entire Princeton community — students, faculty, staff, alumni and other interested thinkers — Forward Fest explores, engages and develops bold thinking for the future.

 AUDIENCE: This virtual event is free and open to the public through the livestream.
