Designed and run by students, Student Seminars explore topics through an interdisciplinary lens. Join us at this info session to hear from past seminar leaders and brainstorm ideas! Read about past seminars at https://www.haverford.edu/past-student-seminars.
Each spring, students are invited to propose four-to-five-session seminars on topics of their choosing, to take place the following academic year in either the fall or spring semester. These not-for-credit seminars are supported by a faculty advisor who helps in the development of the seminar reading list and structure. Proposals may include trips or guest speakers.
Once a seminar has been approved, the Center issues a call to all students and selects participants with a diversity of disciplinary perspectives. All books, materials, trips, and refreshments are funded by the Hurford Center!
New: This year, the Center is considering proposals that both work within the format of past student seminars, as well as proposals for seminars that take a different form and experiment with new ways of gathering and learning together. Possible formats could include:
A series of trips to archives, museums, galleries, and other cultural organizations that explore a common theme
Film screenings organized on- and off-campus that explore a common theme
And many other possibilities.
Seminars can receive up to $2000 to support these trips, speakers, and other elements. Students are asked to submit a preliminary budget as part of their applications.
To discuss your idea, contact Hurford Center Assistant Director Kelly Jung to set up a meeting - hjung1 [at] haverford.edu
