Collaborative Goals

Our Working Group's goals were to have at least two workshops where corridor participants could learn about the work of others and share their work. We met those goals.

Group Outcomes

Both of the workshops (Fall 2021 and Spring 2022) involved scholars within the Corridor and outside of the Corridor sharing works-in-progress. What this allowed us to do is learn about what people in our field are working on right now and also share our own work. The authors of the papers presented at the these workshops receive a lot of feedback from workshop participants, who often then go on to publish these papers in academic journals.

The Spring 2022 CNY Ancient Philosophy workshop at Union College was a great success. It featured four speaker presentations, including three by faculty and grad students from Corridor institutions and one from an invited guest from outside the Corridor. It was attended by roughly 15 participants.
