These study opportunities allow faculty and a select number of graduate students to increase their knowledge of current scholarship and advance their own teaching and research. Participants in these two- to five-week programs receive stipends to help cover travel and living expenses.

The 20 seminars and institutes for summer 2012 will address the following topics:

•Health and disease in the Middle Ages

•Leonardo da Vinci

•Tudor books and readers

•Medieval Muslim-Christian-Jewish Mediterranean

•20th-century French history

•James Joyce’s Ulysses

•Roman empire and comedy, Etruscans

•Visual culture of the American Civil War

•World War I in the Middle East

•Contemporary African-American literature

•Asian-American art history

•Mesoamerica and the American Southwest

•Experimental philosophy

•Jane Austen

•Liberty, equality and justice

•Oscar Wilde

•American maritime history

•Consciousness from Buddhist and contemporary philosophical perspectives

Many seminars and institutes take place on American campuses; others are held at sites in Belgium, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and Spain.
