Workshop Prospectus | Program | Abstracts | Anchor Paper Abstracts and Summaries

Building upon G. Stanley Hall's 1909 idea of structuring the University’s 20th celebration around a series devoted to the discussion of questions on the frontier of human knowledge, the 2009 workshop will provide an opportunity for cross-disciplinary dialogue on the themes: knowledge, practice, and experience. Two planning conferences—one in July 2007 in Schengen, Luxembourg and a second at Clark University in April 2008 have paved the way for the October 2009 two-day gathering.

The 2009 workshop is designed to facilitate discussion around pre-circulated papers and thus is invitational. The ultimate goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of questions on the frontier of human knowledge and practice that will benefit all the human sciences in the years to come. Paper abstracts will be web available and plans are underway for an edited volume so that ideas from the workshop can be disseminated more broadly.
