The goal of this working group is to support research in three areas of genealogical research: 1) genealogy as a philosophical tradition, 2) genealogy as a practice of critique, 3) genealogy as a methodology of historical research. Our goal is to bridge disciplinary divides in genealogical research to facilitate collaborative research synergies and programing, support ongoing faculty and graduate research projects, and create spaces for critical methodological analysis and graduate training.

We were able to expand our network by hosting Frieder Vogelmann, professor of epistemology and philosophy of science at the University of Freiburg in Germany. Professor Vogelmann's talk appealed to a wide audience, with faculty and students from various departments in the humanities and natural sciences. We also hosted an event with Eraldo Souza dos Santos, which attracted a large audience, primarily from the Department of Government at Cornell University.
