Apply for Midwest Faculty Seminar
Each year the University of Chicago Center for Teaching and Learning organizes a number of seminars for faculty from a consortium group of 24 midwest colleges and universities. These are interdisciplinary scholarly symposia on topics of interest to those teaching in liberal arts environments. Faculty Development is able to send a small number of full-time faculty each year to attend MFS seminars.
The four Midwest Faculty Seminar topics for 2013-14 are:
- Digital Humanities (November 14-16, 2013)
- Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals (January 23-25, 2014)
- Capitalism and its Futures (February 20-22, 2014)
- The Future of Higher Education (April 24-26, 2014)
- 2013-14 MFS Seminar Descriptions
If you are interested in applying to attend one of the email a description (no more than one page, single-spaced) of how attendance at a specific seminar would affect your teaching and/or research to Faculty Development at firstname.lastname@example.org. Priority is given to those faculty who have never attended a Midwest Faculty Seminar in the past. All expenses are paid. The seminars generally last from early Thursday morning until noon on Saturday.
