University Seminars 2023-24

University Seminars 2023-24

Dartmouth's University Seminars bring together faculty members from across the institution to study and discuss topics of common interest in depth and on a continuing basis. Broadly interdisciplinary, the University Seminars are meant to engage faculty with topics that transcend specialization and narrow focus. The structure and enrollment of each seminar is at the discretion of the faculty leader(s), and may include post-docs or research faculty, regular collaborators from nearby institutions (e.g., DH, CRREL, Northern Stage), as well as occasional outside guests. The provost office will fund a modest budget. Typical seminars meet throughout one academic year (fall through spring) and meet monthly or biweekly over a meal.


Proposals should outline the following:

  • Description of the topic (1 page): should be broadly interdisciplinary.
  • Membership (1 page): list the likely participants and identify one or two tenure-ladder faculty who will organize and convene the seminar. 
  • Meeting schedule for Academic Year 2023-24.
  • Budget (1 page): meals for group meetings, materials, supplies.

Applicants will also be expected to provide a 2-page report at the end of the academic year describing the outcome of the seminar and a list of members.
