Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience

I want the winds of all cultures to blow freely about my house, but not to be swept off my feet by any. - Mohandas K. Gandhi

Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience

The Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience is celebrating its second decade as an interdisciplinary academic center that, through public partnerships and programming, offers the Newark metropolitan area the finest thinkers and artists engaged with key issues of modern life.  Through an array of lectures, fellowships, symposia, film screenings, performances, exhibitions, and other programs, we foster broad public discussion on the arts and culture; urban life and development; diversity and race relations; local, national, and transnational history; and education.  The Institute promotes intercultural understanding, civic and historical empathy, and community engagement as crucial elements in the development of civic life in Newark and beyond.
