The 20 seminars and institutes for summer 2012 will address the following topics:
Health and disease in the Middle Ages
20th-century French history
James Joyces Ulysses
Roman empire and comedy, Etruscans
Visual culture of the American Civil War

Consciousness from Buddhist and contemporary philosophical perspectives
Many seminars and institutes take place on American campuses; others are held in Belgium, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, and Spain.
