Associate Director James Weissinger & Professor Laura McGrane will host a Student Seminar proposal-writing workshop in James House from 1:30 - 2:30 this Friday, February 26th.  Pizza lunch provided.    Student Seminars are interdisciplinary not-for-credit classes designed and run by students, with topics ranging from the psychology of music in film to the relationship between poetry and polynomials. Students are invited each spring to propose (individually or with a partner) a topic that they would like to explore in a group setting (six or seven participants) the following fall. The Student Seminar organizer(s) recruit(s) a faculty adviser, who helps develop the students' syllabus, sitting in on one of the sessions in the fall. All books, materials, and refreshments are funded by the Center, and each student receives a generous book stipend to purchase other materials related to the seminar topic. The Center also funds a visiting speaker if desired.
