The Kahn Institute's projects are designed to foster communities of scholars in which faculty, students and visiting scholars can participate as equals and explore diverse areas of research in a collaborative and interdisciplinary setting.
Every Kahn project is proposed and designed by one or several faculty members who serve as a project's organizing fellows. A project's central research questions are framed in a way that is open to a variety of disciplinary perspectives and yet be sufficiently focused to sustain a coherent investigation.
Kahn projects are typically developed as semester or yearlong collaborations, but short-term projects may be designed with the intention of testing and developing ideas that have the potential to become long-term projects.
