The Provost’s Annual Symposium on Disciplinarity brings together scholars in the humanities who examine disciplinary boundaries, canonical divides, and methodological limitations and anxieties to introduce fresh and innovative thinking in the academy and beyond. By featuring a keynote address followed by respondents from various disciplines, it is our hope that this annual symposia will create new dialogue and further innovations out of particular disciplinary locations and across the academic and public spectrum. Our inaugural featured speaker is Hazel Carby, the Charles C. and Dorothea S. Dilley Professor of African American Studies, Professor of American Studies, and Director of the Initiative on Race, Gender and Globalization at Yale University. Her books include Reconstructing Womanhood, Race Men,and Cultures in Babylon. Her current work in progress is Child of Empire: Racializing Subjects in Post WWII Britain. For the inaugural lecture, respondents will focus particularly on interdisciplinarity as it pertains to the construction of race. This event is free and open to the public.
