Four roundtables will canvass current work in four major areas of inquiry: 

     Public Writing: Forms, Challenges, and Opportunities for the Humanities

     Race and Region: New Work on Identities, Institutions, and Territories

     Environmental Humanities: Texts and Design in an Age of Planetary Crisis     

     Arts of Research: Creating Ideas Across Media and Audiences 

The agenda will feature faculty from the School of Arts and Sciences, the School for Communication and Information, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and the Mason Gross School of the Arts. 

The day is a precursor to establishing a flourishing and forward-looking research commons at Rutgers, engaging with our mission as scholars and artists, introducing us to new colleagues, and reacquainting us with our strengths.
