Student Seminars are interdisciplinary, not-for-credit classes designed and run by students in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Each spring students are invited to propose a seminar to take place the following year in either the fall or spring semester on a topic of their choosing. They are supported by a faculty advisor who helps the development of the seminar curriculum and structure. Once accepted and approved, the Center issues a call for participation to all students and selects participants with a diversity of disciplinary perspectives and experiences. Seminars typically meet five to six times, and all books, materials, trips, and refreshments are funded by the Center.

Past seminars include:

  • Asian/American: A Search for Belonging

  • The Writing on the Wall: Graffiti, Street Art, and Organic Urban Architecture

  • Beyond the Reals: An Exploration of Mathematics in Fiction

  • High Contrast: Representations of Black Women in White America

  • Music and the Sacred: the Intersection of Religion and the Auditory Arts

  • Decoding the Videogame: Reading and Writing in New Media
