Faculty seminars and workshops are designed to bring faculty from different disciplinary perspectives together over topics of common interest.

About the Seminars

Faculty seminar programs enhance collegiality, advance research and promote the development of intellectual communities. In some seminars, faculty present work in progress or invite scholars from outside Dartmouth to share their work. Others are temporary collaborations on a defined project. We are open to proposals for new workshops at any time from faculty whose work advances the general mission of the Dickey Center.

International Relations and Foreign Policy Seminar

This seminar is organized by the Dickey Center in collaboration with the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy. It is open to faculty from all disciplines. Students working on research projects related to a particular speaker are welcome to attend by emailing Tom Candon in the Dickey Center.

All seminars take place in the Class of 1957 Library in 353 Haldeman, unless otherwise indicated. 

Comparative Slavery Studies Group

Meeting at least twice per term, this study group brings together faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and visiting scholars to discuss research engaging the problem of slavery trans-historically and cross-culturally, in ancient Rome, Latin America, the Caribbean, the American South, and Africa. Established in 2012 with support from the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Comparative Slavery Studies Group continues to develop interests across multiple Dartmouth departments and programs, including Classics, History, Religion, African and African-American Studies, Comparative Literature, and Latin and Latin-American Studies.

For more information about the study group, please contact Professor Roberta Stewart, Department of Classics, or call 603-646-3394.
