The Humanities Center is excited to announce four seminars for the 2019-20 academic year: (1) The Gloria Naylor Archive, (2) Trans* Studies, (3) Democracy and Truth, and (4) Interdisciplinary Approaches to Antibiotic Resistance. This year, we have consciously built collaborative relationships across campus to develop diverse seminars designed to build intellectual community, facilitate cutting-edge scholarship, jumpstart long-term projects, and bring in prestigious visiting scholars who will contribute to conversations already underway among Lehigh graduate students and faculty. The seminars meet eight times over the course of the year, and participants receive a $1000 research or travel grant. We invite anyone with an interest in learning more about the topics to apply, but special consideration will be given to applicants who have work in progress that they would be interested in workshopping with this small intellectual community. The seminars are open to faculty (tenure-track, adjunct, visiting), staff, and graduate students who have passed their exams. Detailed descriptions, application instructions, and fine print are below as PDF.
