Group Seminars (GSems) are unique to the Graduate Group. Taught by two or more faculty members from different disciplines, they model interdisciplinary thinking and research on topics of concern across the humanities. One or two GSems are offered each year. Students in the Group are required to take at least one, but many take more.
