What is the IHPK?

Founded at New York University in 1997, the Institute for the History of the Production of Knowledge (IHPK) is a non-degree-granting initiative designed to encourage faculty and students to explore the changing configurations of disciplines, methodologies, and technologies that have shaped knowledge in the ancient and modern worlds. By developing seminars and workshops that examine the history of these configurations, the Institute also supports experiments with new constellations of subject matters and texts, innovative methodologies, and interrogations of existing departmental and divisional organization within this and other universities.
