Science in Society

Bryn Mawr College

Graduate Idea Forum

Open to all
Next Meeting: Tuesday, June 24, 1-3 p.m.
School of Social Work

Graduate education necessarily involves exploration in depth of the understandings and literature of particular disciplines, but is greatly faciliated by simultaneous explorations of the place of particular disciplines in broader intellectual and social discourse. This working group, organized by GSSWSR and Arts and Sciences graduate students, takes advantage of the availability of excellent semi-popular books on general interdisciplinary themes to encourage and facilitate the broader explorations. Anyone interested in thinking about intellectual issues which transcend particular discplinary borders are invited to join the working group by contacting Judie McCoyd, Liz Shea or Corey Shdaimah.
