The Interdisciplinary Forum at the Graduate School of North American Studies invites all doctoral candidates and postdoctoral fellows at the Graduate School of North American Studies and the John F. Kennedy Institute to participate. The Forum hosts workshops in which members present and discuss their work. It consists of researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds including cultural studies, political science, sociology, literary studies, economics, and history. This interdisciplinary approach is part of a conscious effort to overcome disciplinary divisions in order to enrich critical thinking and rearticulate our modes of interrogation and analysis.
