The Franke Program in Science and the Humanities is excited to announce the launch of the Franke Ideas Salon, an initiative for Yale University faculty that we hope will greatly enhance intellectual engagement across disciplines. The Franke Ideas Salon is a new monthly informal meeting intended to facilitate inter-disciplinary interaction and intellectual exchange. The event will consist of two faculty members from two distinct disciplines addressing a single theme from their unique vantage points with a brief presentation, followed by discussion and Q&A. Dinner will be served and our gathering hopes to have 20 – 30 guests at each event.
The Inaugural Salon speakers are: Richard Prum (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology) and Jonathan Kramnick (English) and the theme of their conversation is Beauty & Aesthetics.
TIME: 6 – 8 p.m., Feb. 15, 2018
PLACE: MORSE HOC HOUSE
Please respond by Tuesday, February 6 so that we may have a full count in hand for our caterer.
