Cultivating intellectual community among Berkeley faculty who are engaged in the work of international studies is one of the Institute's core objectives. The new Faculty Seminar series was created by IIS co-directors Susan Hyde and Daniel Sargent to promote engagement and forge connections of UC Berkeley faculty across the academic disciplines. Over monthly lunchtime presentations, faculty participants get the opportunity to learn from each other across the silos of discipline and field, and engage in informative conversations that spark connections and expand a shared understanding of various research agendas. As such, the IIS Seminar forum is meant to help to knit together international studies as an interdisciplinary domain at UC Berkeley.
All talks will convene at noon in 223 Philosophy Hall and will be conducted in person, consistent with campus COVID protocols.
