Following on the success of our Franke Ideas Salons last year, we are delighted to invite any Yale faculty members to the first convening of this unique series this semester. The Franke Ideas Salon is an informal meeting and idea-space intended to facilitate inter-disciplinary interaction and intellectual exchange. The event, as per usual, will consist of two faculty members from two distinct disciplines addressing a theme from the vantage point of their respective fields with a brief presentation, followed by discussion and Q&A. Dinner and drinks will be served, and our gathering hopes to have ~20-30 guests.
Our Salon speakers for September 12th are: Tracey Meares (Law School) and Laura Wexler (American Studies, WGSS), and the theme of their conversation is Identification & Identity: technologies of witnessing.
