Conferences

Academic conferences have a well-earned reputation for being boring. But when properly designed, conferences for scholars and students from around the world are of the most effective vehicles available for airing new ideas, testing them, and sending them out into the world. Over the past decade, Institute scholars have designed and conducted three series of international conferences involving hundreds of scholars:
