Undergraduate Student Academic Interest Groups
For the second year, the Institute for the Humanities invites proposals from undergraduate students for interest groups on humanities-related topics. Have you and your friends been inspired by a discussion in one of your courses about a period in history, a philosophical tradition, a particular theorist, an artist’s political stance, a cultural phenomenon, or a particular way of reading a novel? Have you found yourselves continuing the discussion outside of class? Do you know other students with similar interests who want to gather regularly to discuss ideas and readings? The Institute for the Humanities will provide support for a group based around your interests.
Interested in forming a group? Read more on the Institute for Humanities website.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through the end of the fall semester.
