About Us

The Reorientations Interdisciplinary Workshop aims rethink historical doxa along global and transnational axes, using intersectional methodologies to address interdisciplinary questions of temporality, space, and cultural convergence. Our group brings together scholars from departments including Art History, English Literature, Sociology, American Culture, Anthropology, and Chinese Studies as well as librarians, museum curators, and archivists in order to support our core ethos, which depends heavily on scholarly experimentation and a vibrant exchange across various disciplines. Organized around the theme of reorientation as a methodology, our group is committed to advocating a decentered approach to transnational studies in various time periods and regions.

We are sponsored by the Rackham Graduate School.
