Colloquium website

The colloquium is the culmination of a year-long interdisciplinary faculty-graduate student research cluster sponsored by Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities. Participants in “Transmission, Translation, and Directionality in Cultural Exchange” have been exploring the problematics and methodologies of researching cultural contact and exchange across time and space and at multiple scales. The colloquium is intended to foster spirited conversation among graduate students and faculty who can bring their current research projects, share and receive feedback from participants and faculty respondents across a variety of fields.

Keynote speakers are Gabriela Currie (Music, University of Minnesota) and Ronald Schleifer (English, University of Oklahoma)
