I-Seminar 2012

I-Seminars promote and support interdisciplinary learning and discussion at the College of Wooster.  We bring students, faculty and staff from diverse background and points of view together several times throughout the spring semester to engage in dialogue within and across interdisciplinary programs.  I-Seminar serves as a space for idea sharing on relatively incomplete, but mature, I.S. projects.

There will be 5 I-Seminars during spring 2012.  Details of each I-Seminar are below. 

All seminars are held in Babcock Dining Hall, from 11-1.
Lunch will be provided, and all attendees are requested to pre-register.  Register here.
