Beyond the Lectures
The lectures and discussions are the focal point of the week, but they are only part of the program. Other components are the informal lectures and the optional cultural and recreational events. In recent years participants have enjoyed:
Concerts of the Sewanee Summer Music Festival; Films, both for pleasure and reinforcement of the lectures; Receptions and informal gatherings; Exploring the campus, the Domain, and nearby areas; Swimming and other activities in the Fowler Center; Evenings at Stirling’s Coffeehouse; Golf, Tennis ... and so forth. The time is yours – to be actively engaged, to sit back and relax, to get to know some interesting people, and to recharge your spirit.

A Big Change for this Summer
As most of you know, the University is building a new, beautiful Sewanee Inn this coming summer, so we need a temporary home for our seminars. The only building left on campus that meets our needs is the Tennessee Williams Center at 406 Kentucky Avenue — so that will be our new home this summer. This is an exciting opportunity in that participants will be able to see and enjoy first hand what an amazing facility it is for learning, and doing, theatre.
