Application Information for Graduate Summer Seminars
Erasmus Institute Graduate Summer Seminars
Philosophy and History (two separate seminars)
June 3 - June 24, 2000
Notre Dame, Indiana
In addition to its other programs, the Erasmus Institute sponsors Summer Seminars each year for advanced graduate students in the
dissertation stage of their graduate work. (Postdoctoral scholars revising a dissertation for book publication are also eligible for the graduate seminar.) The purpose of the seminars is to offer scholars a chance to enrich their research by relating it to the intellectual traditions associated with Catholicism in particular, as well as to those of other Christian traditions and the Abramic religions more generally. A distinguished senior scholar leads each of the seminars, helping its members over the course of four weeks to explore ways in which these traditions can enhance their individual projects. The Institute will cover expenses of food, lodging, transportation, and provide a $600 stipend for all participants.
The Summer 2000 seminars will be housed on the attractive campus of the University of Notre Dame. One of the graduate student seminars
will focus on Philosophy and will be led by Gary Gutting, Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame. Gutting is a senior fellow at the Erasmus Institute for the Spring, 2000 semester. The other graduate seminar focuses on History and will be led by Patricia Herlihy, Associate Professor of History, Brown University.
Both seminars will draw on the current work of the participants, with the aim of mutually critiquing and improving members' research by more
effective application of Catholic and other Abramic intellectual traditions.
Applicants should submit two letters of recommendation, a curriculum vitae, and a statement of intent (no longer than three double-spaced pages) that describes the applicant's current research specifies how this work draws upon Catholic (or other Christian, Jewish, or Islamic) intellectual traditions explains what the applicant wishes to achieve by participating in the seminar.
