Honors Seminar

HSEM 2039H
Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:00-5:30 p.m.
240 Northrop (Crosby Seminar Room)
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 2015 Thursdays at Four speakers will explore visual representations of time, the music of Schoenberg performed by the Bakken Trio, human rights in post-Stalinist Europe, spirituality after Darwin, the future of the Mississippi River, how to understand mass images, and more—see the complete schedule. This is the perfect seminar to introduce you to the rich variety of work done at the University.

If you have questions please contact instructor Susannah Smith.

Registration open to honors students only.
