Wesleyan Symposium on RISK

Symposium is a day-long interdisciplinary critique, which:

  • Prompts the exchange of ideas and methods of inquiry between students and faculty across the curriculum,
  • Stimulates creativity and innovation,
  • Serves as a platform for juniors to develop senior research topics.

Why Risk?

Notions of vulnerability, security, and susceptibility are central to the ways we think and avenues of inquiry. “Risk” can apply to issues of statistical probability, genetic citizenship and responsibility, immigration and the precarity of citizenship, or climate change. We are eager to engage in an interdisciplinary conversation that honors these dimensions and complexities from many different vantage points and on a variety of scales.

Symposium will be held on Saturday, May 2. Lunch and dinner will be provided. The event is free, but registration is required. Email Gabriel Frankel (gfrankel@wesleyan.edu) to register.symposium_schedule
