Interdisciplinarity Now and Tomorrow: A Conversation with Jennifer Gunn and Bianet Castellanos

September 29, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Join the Institute for Advanced Study as we celebrate Jennifer Gunn, outgoing director, and welcome Bianet Castellanos, incoming director.

Interdisciplinary networks are at the core of the IAS’s work and mission: as a center, the IAS depends on bringing people together from different cultural, educational, and disciplinary backgrounds, of different ranks and standing from across and outside the University. As director, Jennifer Gunn has forged countless surprising and unexpected connections to help ignite and incubate new projects, programs, and initiatives. How do these ideas come to fruition? And how is interdisciplinary collaboration changing—especially as scholars engage with community partners to address some of today’s most pressing issues? As we look back at how Jennifer Gunn has increased the IAS’s capacity to incubate substantial collaborations, we will also look ahead to the future of what it means to do interdisciplinary work, and how these collaborations—with both internal and external partners—can help us build a just university together.

Following the event, please join us in Northrop’s 4th floor Best Buy Gallery for a reception celebrating the women who are transforming the IAS, interdisciplinary collaboration, and the University.
