This event is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute's New Frontiers in Global Research Initiative, through which we invite scholars, artists, and other cultural producers to discuss global challenges that necessitate international cooperation and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Our fall iteration sits at the nexus of art, culture, and politics. On Thursday, September 30, Nicole Fleetwood (Media, Culture, and Communication, NYU) and Ronak Kapadia (Gender and Women's Studies, UIC) come together for a conversation about research on carcerality, U.S. imperialism, and visual culture. They will discuss their approaches to the task of interdisciplinarity and speak to the role of collaboration in their works. This event, and this series, implore us to consider how we define, assess, and analyze the “global” in global research.

Moderator: Ivy Wilson (English, Northwestern)
