Bard Graduate Center’s programs for the scholarly and general public represent its commitment to explore the varied meanings of things over time. Research and academic events, such as lectures, seminars, and symposia, are curated by faculty members and make BGC a major venue for advanced discussion of the cultural history of the material world. This same interest in rigorous investigation is brought to the expanded public programming, which aims to enrich understanding of the material world through conversations, literary events, artist residencies, and performance.
