Instructor: Susannah Smith, Institute for Advanced Study
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 attend the Thursdays at Four series and meet on Tuesdays to discuss the presentations, which draw upon disciplines across the University. We do supplemental readings related to the presentations and talk with presenters as their schedules allow.
The Spring 2012 Thursdays at Four schedule includes presentations by scholars of ecological history, pharmaceutical research, new media, and indigenous languages and will feature discussions with choreographers and a performance by the musical ensemble Consortium Carissimi. — see the calendar for the complete schedule. 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 13 Folwell Hall and on Thursdays in the Nolte Library (125 Nolte) for the presentation. If you have questions please contact Susannah Smith
Registration open to honors students only.
