MCSI Spring 2013 Student Fellows Program
Students who wish to enroll in the MCSI seminar on THE CITY, should email Professor Daniel Segal for permission to enroll. Students who enroll in the seminar are Student Fellows of the Center and will meet in small seminars with MCSI's visiting speakers.
MCSI brings to Pitzer College scholars, public intellectuals, and artists who are making singular contributions in their fields. The Student Fellows program is a unique opportunity to learn from and interact with these distinguished visitors, while pursuing a semester-long project within the broad area of the Center’s theme.
Student Fellows are selected for one semester. They attend all the public events of the Center during that semester, and they enroll in a weekly seminar (MCSI 195) with the MCSI Director, Daniel Segal, in which they discuss the Center’s public events and read relevant works. In addition, each Student Fellow plans and completes a project for the seminar—in most cases, a research paper—related to the Center’s theme for the semester. Some funding will be available to support the research and projects of the MCSI Student Fellows.
In the spring of 2013, the seminar will meet on Tuesdays from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Center’s public events will began at 4:15 p.m. and end around 5:45 p.m., also on Tuesdays. There will be roughly 10 such public events in the spring of 2012. During weeks when no public event is planned, Student Fellows will meet with the Academic Director to discuss their progress on their projects.
To be eligible to be a Student Fellow, you must be a student in good standing at The Claremont Colleges. There will be up to 18 Student Fellows, with 12 spaces reserved for Pitzer students.
