Constructing Knowledge: Building a Graduate Network
A Graduate Student Interdisciplinary Conference

We are constantly constructing knowledge. The aim of this two day conference is primarily to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and find commonalities among our work and interests.

James M. Jasper will give the plenary address, “Strategy and Rhetoric in Social Research”, on the 26th at 7:00 in Vorhees Hall adjacent to the Zimmerili Art Museum. Dr. Jasper is an independent scholar, editor of Contexts, and the author of several books, including most recently Getting Your Way: Strategic Dilemmas in the Real World. He has taught at Berkeley, Princeton, Columbia, NYU, and the New School.
