Stay tuned for more information coming in summer 2020.

We anticipate the 11 Frascari Symposia 

as biennial events that will travel to interested academic institutions and assemble distinctive voices.


In the practice of Plato’s Symposium, we gather to chew on a topic and to digest one another’s points of view with a hefty dose of merriment and conviviality. If you are interested in hosting a symposium,please email:

Dr. Paul Emmons

Dr. Federica Goffi
