About Fertile Ground: Cross-Disciplinary Conversations
This event series brings together scholars working on the same or closely related questions, but from different disciplinary perspectives. Through these curated encounters, we hope to generate synergies inspiring new insights, discoveries, convergences, and even breakthroughs.
In Fertile Ground, we pair scholars with anthropologists, historians, sociologists, literary scholars and more, and see what magic occurs! We strive to make these conversations cross-generational as well, including students, PhD researchers, professors and everyone in between, and welcome conversationalists from around the world.
