The Institute for Humane Studies has some great opportunities for graduate students who might be interested in honing their research and teaching skills this summer:
- The Symposia on Scholarship & a Free Society bring graduate students together with leading classical liberal scholars from a range of disciplines for a weekend of discussion and research presentations. All applicants are invited to submit an optional proposal for a paper presentation. Applications to attend this summer must be received by March 15th. Additional details: www.TheIHS.org/scholarship-free-society.
- The Liberty & the Art of Teaching Workshop taking place June 28-30 at Towson University in Towson, MD welcomes teachers, both new and experienced, to discuss and experiment with best practices for the university classroom. IHS provides full funding, including meals, accommodations, and program costs. Participants are responsible for travel (limited scholarships are available to cover travel expenses). For additional details on faculty presenters, topics, schedule, and feedback from past participants, visitwww.TheIHS.org/teaching-workshop/liberty-art-of-teaching/. Application deadline: April 15th.
IHS was a terrific help to me as a graduate student. And their programs have only gotten better since then. I highly recommend them!
