A Year of Forward Thinking

In the final Forward Fest event of the year, scholars and alumni will look back to the themes of the past year and discuss how they intersect in the interdisciplinary environment of Princeton University. “Thinking Forward: Bringing Themes Together,” will be available via livestream on Wednesday, June 16, at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Offering humanities perspectives will be professor of Religion and chair of the Humanities Council Eric Gregory — who will discuss how we can make sense of uncertain and challenging times — and professor of Anthropology Laurence Ralph, who will review the past year in terms of police reform and social justice. Allison Carruth, professor in the Program in American Studies and High Meadows Environmental Institute, will share her research bridging the arts, humanities, and sciences.

Those who RSVP now will have the opportunity to join a private Zoom session to speak live with the participants as part of the program, get updates on other forward-thinking content, and receive a reminder before Forward Fest begins.
