Summer Seminar at Xavier University, Cincinnati


What Does it Mean to be Human in Consumer Culture?


Implications for the Church and Christian Scholars

July 7-25, 2014

    The seminar will explore consumer culture and how it affects the lives of individuals.  Explicit attention will be placed on how identity is constructed and conveyed.  Discussion will focus on the relational aspects of consumer culture – relationships between individuals and between individuals and God.  Discussion will also examine the ramifications that the relational aspects of consumer culture have for different disciplines with the goal of facilitating research into this timely area and to explore ways that the realities of consumer culture can be included into the classroom.

The deadline for applications is November 11, 2013.  For more information, see Xavier University's Summer Seminar website

Summer Seminars


Description and Guidelines

Description:
Summer Seminars for College Teachers are designed for faculty at Network institutions with preference for early-career faculty.  Each seminar will be convened by a seasoned faculty person from a Network school who will have the responsibilities of designing the seminar, recruiting twelve participants from at least six different LFP Network Schools, conducting the seminar, evaluating the seminar, and disseminating what was learned.  Each seminar will address a major interdisciplinary issue of special concern for teachers in the church-related academy.  Topics must be broadly interdisciplinary, encourage ecumenical conversation, and aim to impact classroom content and practice in church-related institutions. Participants in the seminar will read a set of common texts, engage in disciplined discussion of the seminar topic, and write on some aspect of the seminar topic.  Each seminar will meet for a three or four-week period, typically on the campus of a Network school, or for two weeks with participants returning for three or four days at a designated additional time, typically at the home institution of the seminar director.  Institutions selected to host the seminars will be awarded $56,000.

Eligibility for Grant Applicants:
Institutions that have already received a grant in this category will not be eligible in the same category again for three years after the original grant was awarded.

Application Procedures:
Application procedures for the Summer Seminars for College Teachers are found here. Applicants must consult with the Lilly Fellows Program Director prior to submitting the application.
