Started in 1947, the Salzburg Seminar series continues to attract faculty and academic professionals from around the world. However, the seminar gives preference to "mid-career" persons, usually under 40, although others who apply are accepted.
As in the past, interested faculty members may submit a proposal, not to exceed two pages, explaining how the seminar would enhance their work at the University.
The 1998 core program includes sessions on:
The participation by UD faculty has strengthened academic offerings by enriching teaching and research with international experience.
The program is administered by a faculty committee, chaired by G. Arno Loessner, urban affairs and public policy.
This year's committee includes the two faculty members who attended in 1997, Sylvia Weyerbrock, food and resource economics, and Beth Haslett, communication.
The seminar offers a fellowship, which covers half the cost of tuition, room and board. Persons wishing to apply for sessions in 1998 should include with their proposals a memo addressed to Loessner from their department chairperson and/or dean, indicating support for their participation and willingness to pay the balance of $2,250 in tuition, room and board, plus the cost of round-trip travel to Salzburg.
The deadline for proposals is 4:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 5.
A Salzburg brochure, outlining details of the different sessions and listing former fellows from the University, is in the Reserve Room of the Morris Library.
