Faculty Seminar Proposals
Faculty Seminars seek to bring together colleagues from different departments and disciplines for a semester-long investigation of a designated topic. Seminars may be organized in the following ways:
- by a faculty member, in which Columbia faculty members present and discuss their own work.
- by a faculty member, in which invited guests present and discuss to Columbia faculty members.
- through a co-sponsorship between the Institute and a leading cultural institution in New York City (e.g., the Guggenheim, MoMA, Met, Lincoln Center, New York Public Library, Council on Foreign Relations). These seminars will bring together artists, academics and critics around themes and issues of common interest.
- as a global seminar that bring together faculty at different institutions throughout the world using Web-based and teleconferencing technologies. Seminar will have a co-director from each participating university.
Each seminar may have up to two organizers, who will each receive a stipend of $2000. The Institute will also provide each seminar $2000 to spend on expenses such as catering and material.
Proposals should include a 1-2 page description of subject of the seminar as well as a list of likely participants. It should also indicate anticipated results of the seminar, e.g., particular courses, a collection of essays for the Institute’s publication series, public lectures and or symposia, etc.
