Life of the Mind

BSP provides a venue for research and intellectual exchange among an interdisciplinary community of scholars. It is a collaborative space to share and nourish ideas and sustain the long arc of their development.


BSP recognizes that intellectual and social relationships are key to thriving communities. In moments of calm and crisis, BSP serves as a base for coalition building, idea dissemination and advocacy.


Three key areas of inquiry in the Humanities, Social Sciences and STEM fields:

  • Transnational and diasporic studies
  • Social justice movements
