The annual Summer Institute of Civic Studies is now accepting applications for its 2015 session.
This two-week, graduate level seminar is an intensive experience – discussions cover about a thousand pages of reading over nine full days. But it’s an amazing experience for anyone interested in exploring an academic, interdisciplinary understanding of citizens and societies.
The seminar brings together an impressive range of scholars and practitioners, all with a variety of experience but with a shared commitment of improving societies.
Of course, there’s plenty to question, argue about, and discuss when it comes to questions of what is a good society or how we might get there.
And that’s what makes this Institute so fun.
The Summer Institute will take place from June 15-27, 2015. For best consideration, applications should be submitted by March 15, 2015.
