This book commemorates the Illinois 150 conference, a celebration of interdisciplinary research at Illinois on the occasion of the university's 150th anniversary. Across six disparate themes, leading scholars from at home and abroad reflected on what research is most needed today to sustain our world. For this publication, a few outstanding students contributed reflective reports on the conference's six parallel symposia. Also included are abstracts and other visual documentation of the event.
