In this seminar the best of the University’s research and creative work is brought to you. Every Thursday afternoon, the Institute for Advanced Study offers a presentation—a lecture, film, performance—by leading scholars and artists from around the world and within the University. Seminar participants will attend the Thursdays at Four series and meet on Tuesdays to discuss the presentations, which will draw upon disciplines across the University. We will do supplemental readings related to the presentations and talk with presenters as their schedules allow.

The Fall 2009 Thursdays at Four series will include presentations by U faculty on their new work in social activism and performance, sustainable food production,and bioethics, as well as internationally known visitors discussing their work in medieval history, philosophy of mind, Sami theater, Chinese avant garde, the relationship between science and architecture, and more. This is the perfect seminar to introduce you to the rich variety of work done at the University.

The class meets on Tuesdays for discussion in 229 Nolte Center and on Thursdays in the Nolte Library (125 Nolte) for the presentation. If you have questions please contact Susannah Smith
