INCITE’s Mellon Interdisciplinary Fellows Program is pleased to announce its Fourth Harriet Zuckerman Conference at the 2017 Mellon Biennial. This conference will take place on April 6 and 7 at the Columbia Law School. Reflecting the intellectual diversity and interdisciplinarity of our Mellon Program, the conference is not about one theme but about several important intellectual, disciplinary, and concrete issues that engage disciplines across the humanities and social sciences, as demonstrated in the panels. Kaiama Glover, Associate Professor of French and Africana Studies at Barnard College, will deliver the keynote address.
Two ideas motivate the Harriet Zuckerman Conference at the Mellon Biennial. Extending the guiding intellectual animus of the Mellon Interdisciplinary Fellows Program, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we bring together alums of the program to engage each other and current fellows in interdisciplinary conversations about their current research, and open these conversations to the wider Columbia and New York City community. The Zuckerman Conference is the focal point of this effort. The conference is also motivated by the importance and pleasure of social relationships in our professional lives. Zuckerman Conferences at the Mellon Biennial have been held every other year since 2011.
