The Bill and Carol Fox Center
for Humanistic Inquiry
Great Works Seminars
Along with its roles as a residential research center for interdisciplinary scholarship in the
humanities, the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry develops and coordinates humanities
programming across the Emory campus. A major component of this effort is the Great
Works Seminars, a new initiative, funded by a Challenge Grant from the National
Endowment for the Humanities. In these seminars, reading groups study the classic
works of philosophy, literature, history, music, and the visual and dramatic arts.
Members of the public will join Emory faculty and students in these groups, which will
generally meet once a month during the academic semester. Programs for these groups
are a combination of individual presentations, group discussions, occasional outside
speakers, and other academic formats the participants may find useful in furthering their
intellectual mission. All seminars in the Great Works Series will be approved by the Fox
Center Executive Committee.
If you would like to participate in one of the Seminars, or would like to propose a Seminar
for Spring or Fall 2013, please contact the Fox Center at 404.727.6424 or email:
