Spring 2016 Great Topics Seminars: "Hopes and Impediments: Modern Africa through the Novels of Chinua Achebe and Buchi Emecheta"




Millsaps College’s Great Topics Seminar for the Spring Semester 2016, will begin January 15-16 with a retreat on campus. Thereafter, weekly meetings will be held on Thursdays in the Millsaps Room of the Millsaps-Wilson Library on the Millsaps campus. The seminar will meet January 21 through April 28 except for Thursday, March 10, which is Spring Break week. Each session will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 12:00 noon. Coffee and snacks will be available during each class.



Leadership Seminars in the Humanities were begun in 1988 through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Their continuation is made possible in part by the generous support of Millsaps College and by the support of former seminar participants. To better reflect the current philosophy of these seminars, the name has been changed to Millsaps Great Topics Seminars: Studies in the Humanities and Sciences.

The fee for participating in this seminar is $800. Due to this special pricing of the Great Topics Seminars, no discounts can be made in the tuition. This course is a noncredit offering of the College and carries no academic credit; however there are rigorous requirements of reading and informal reflection writing during the semester.

For further information, contact Dr. Nola Gibson at 601-974-1130 or gibsonk@millsaps.edu.

The application deadline is December 1. Enrollment in the Seminar is limited.
