Is there a burning topic in your discipline or a topic that cuts across disciplines that we should bring to campus? Is there a format for the conversation that can energize an intellectual community around that topic? That might be the perfect topic for an Obermann Arts & Humanities Symposium!

These imaginative half- and whole-day symposia connect the arts and humanities with design, politics, health sciences, environmental studies, technology, and other disciplines via a compelling topic. Symposia should feature invited speakers, the arts, community-facing programming, and the latest pedagogical approaches to the symposium topic. In addition to the financial award of up to $15,000, Director(s) also receive significant staff support from the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies.
