The Institute on the Formation of Knowledge operated at the University of Chicago from 2015 until 2024. It brought together scholars from many fields to examine the historical, social, and intellectual circumstances that give rise to the different forms of knowledge, and assessed how this knowledge shapes the modern world. The Institute functioned as an incubator for UChicago faculty and visiting scholars, as well as postdoctoral scholars and undergraduate and graduate students. IFK explored key questions and collaborations throught a series of programs and activities, including faculty fellow projects, postdoc projects, undergraduate courses and a MAPSS concentration, thesis advising, workshops and a quarterly journal.
