Humanities and Mobility

The Humanities Council’s kick-off event features a wide-ranging conversation about central issues in our research, teaching, and intellectual life.

A variety of phenomena are ripe for exploration: the mobility of human beings, ideas, ideologies, texts, images, or material objects through space or time; political or revolutionary movements; obstructions to mobility; bodily movement, disability, or different mobilities. What and how we, as human beings, move; and what moves us, as humans.

Our speakers are distinguished Princeton scholars whose work represents different approaches and historical periods.
