“A crowd of small metamorphoses accumulate in me without my noticing it, and then, one fine day, a veritable revolution takes place.”
–Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea

We live in a world inundated with change and transformation. At every turn, technology seems to be evolving, politics are changing, and each day our social world becomes just a little bit different. In and of itself, change holds no intrinsic moral meaning outside the meaning human agents prescribe to it. For this reason, change and transformation occupy a precarious position within our world. Who are the agents of change, and how do these changes impact our daily life? How do we approach change in the social world? How can we ensure that the change we initiate aims to do the right thing? What transformation is needed to move the dial of humanity forward? With these questions in mind, we would like to invite you to the Humanities Graduate Student Caucus Symposium: “Transformation and Change,” an interdisciplinary, student-led graduate conference to be held on March 25th and 26th. Our conference will be hosting graduate students from around the world to present their research on this dynamic topic. We hope to see you all there!
