In October 2014, the Committee on Global Thought launched the Global Think-ins, vehicles for generating new ideas and perspectives on issues of major global concern. The Think-ins are designed as incubators for academics and practitioners from varying disciplinary and methodological backgrounds, geographical locations, and expertise to share, critique, and develop new ideas. Global Think-ins take the form of closed-door brainstorming sessions paired with open public events, and the format includes both in situ and online exchange with global participants.

CGT launched the Global Think-ins with a series entitled, “Rethinking Knowledge.” Although universities are designed to generate and disseminate knowledge, rarely do we reflect on what counts as knowledge or evidence, what lends credence to theory, or what shape that knowledge must take to grasp a changing world. Rethinking Knowledge poses such questions across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, with an eye toward redefining how urgent matters are addressed in a globalizing world.
The series will begin with two events on campus in 2014-15: “Global Governance” and “Making Scientific Evidence Fit for Human Use.” They will be followed by events at select Global Centers, which will bring into the conversation different perspectives and insights from the countries and regions in which the Centers are located.
