What can innovation in arts and humanities research look like? Interdisciplinary graduate training and collaboration. The inaugural cohort of the Interseminars Initiative, funded by the Mellon Foundation, met for a multi-day intensive to present about their scholarship, framework and understanding of “speculative practice” as they plan a new course together for spring 2023.
The 2022–23 Interseminars Cohort “Imagining Otherwise: Speculation in the Americas” includes graduate students Kofi Bazzell-Smith, D. Nicole Campbell, Daniela Morales Fredes, Adanya Gilmore, Beatriz Jiménez, Ray Martinez, Emerson Parker Pehl, María B. Serrano-Abreu, and Toyosi Tejumade-Morgan. The faculty conveners are Josue David Cisneros, Patrick Earl Hammie, and Jorge Lucero.
