Attend this closing symposium to see the final performances and presentations of the students' research.

The Summer Institute in the Arts and Humanities allows selected undergraduates to earn full-time, academic credit through immersion in scholarly research with accomplished scholars and peers. Bringing together four faculty and twenty students in plenary, seminar and tutorial-style sessions, the institute encourages mutual learning as well as independent thought.

This year's theme, Excitations: Energy Studies in the Arts and Humanities, has students attend lectures, seminars, small group critique, workshops, and tutorial sessions. Students read and discuss theoretical readings and engage in digital and physical forms of making, such as 3D printing, photograms, sound editing, video editing, physical computing, and PhotoShop. Students then complete a significant project that reflects their unique insights into the role of energy in the arts and humanities. The forms for these projects may include scholarly research, performances in music / sound / drama, visual artworks / installations, and creative writing.
