The John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies is a unique consortium of programs committed to revitalizing notions of how knowledge is gained and exchanged. Participants from a broad range of disciplines converge to explore intellectual issues, including some of the most pressing social and political themes of our time: race and race relations, the legacy of the African-American experience, equality and opportunity among diverse populations, the implications of accelerated globalization. At its core, the Center claims an intrepid and daring mission: to bring together humanists and those involved in the social sciences in a setting that inspires vigorous scholarship and imaginative alliances. In this way, historians, artists, literary scholars, and philosophers contribute to a rich understanding of moral and ethical issues. Inspired by the example of John Hope Franklin--Duke professor emeritus, historian, intellectual leader, and lifelong civil rights activist--the Franklin Center embraces a creative cross-pollination of ideas, perspectives, and methodologies. Using such sophisticated resources as multimedia and high-speed videoconferencing, the Franklin Center employes advanced technologies not only as a means to an end, but as objects of critical inquiry themselves. These striking new directions in higher education require the marriage of philosophical imagination and pragmatic design.
