Short Seminars

The SAR advanced seminar program has been described by one participant as “time out of time”—after precirculating papers of their freshest insights on a seemingly impossible question, ten scholars are sequestered in a nourishing environment, then left undisturbed for five days to engage in round-the-clock discussions. In a similar way to the resident scholar program, the advanced seminar experience provides an increasingly rare opportunity for scholars to suspend their ordinary obligations and to spend a week with peers, thinking and talking deeply about the cutting edge of their research. This time-tested SAR formula has yielded 132 gatherings since the program began in 1967, two-thirds of which have resulted in published books of the revised seminar papers.

Short Seminars

The short seminar program, with a shorter lead time and gatherings limited to two to three days, serves as a flexible incubator for the exploration of newly emerging trends or burgeoning topics that are creating a buzz. This program accommodates research teams, artists, museum professionals, and applied anthropologists and encourages spontaneity, experimentation, and intensity.
