Thursdays at Four: Across the University and Beyond, Fall 2012
Tuesdays 4:00-5:00 p.m. and Thursdays 4:00-5:40 p.m.
345 Nicholson (Tuesdays) and 125 Nolte Center (Thursdays)
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 Fall 2012 Thursdays at Four schedule includes panel discussions on redlining and artistic process between dancers and choreographers, an exploration of the use of novels as intellectual biographies, a journey into the art of poetry translation, and presentations on stress in military personnel, the medical and ethical implications of cochlear implants, and building a public field site for local food and agriculture education & demonstration on the ruins of an abandoned experimental station–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 Nicholson 345 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.
