Erasmus Institute Graduate Student Summer Seminars
History and Art History
June 14 - June 28, 2003
College of the Holy Cross, Worcester
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 Abrahamic religions more generally. A professor highly regarded in his or her field leads each of the seminars, helping its members over the course of two 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 2003 seminars will be housed on the campus of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, one hour west of Boston. One of the graduate student seminars will focus on History and will be led by Margaret Anderson, Professor of History, University of California at Berkeley. The other graduate seminar focuses on Art History and will be led by Elizabeth Johns, Professor Emerita, History of Art, University of Pennsylvania, and Visiting Fellow, Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture, College of the Holy Cross. Both seminars will draw on the current work of the participants with the aim of stimulating and refining members' research by more effective application of Catholic and other Abrahamic intellectual traditions.
Application information can be found at our website. Deadline for application materials in February 17, 2003.
