Dialogue & New Directions is a biannual digital newsletter from the Research and Academic Program to help us remain connected to our past fellows and also make visible to a wider public the extraordinary scholars, artists, curators, thinkers, and visionaries who come to RAP. Our work is grounded in uniting the solitary practice of writing and research with the necessary engagement of shared conversation. In this newsletter, we share these conversations with you.
