Multidisciplinary Workshop

As part of the ongoing programming for the Center for the Advancement of the Humanities, we will be hosting workshop roundtable discussions with MU faculty, students, and community members on special issue topics. These events seek to generate conversation and the sharing of knowledge across disciplinary lines in ways consistent with Marquette University’s commitment to human well-being and the humanistic studies more broadly. The first of these events begin in the 2018-19 Academic Year. We aim to host 2-3 sessions in the first year. Please join us and share in these collaborative knowledge projects at Marquette!

If you are interested in pitching a topic for our Interdisciplinary Discussion Series, please contact:
