Short Term Programs/Special Opportunities
The Global Dome Exchange Program is a dissertation accelerator in the Humanities created and directed by Notre Dame's Patrick Griffin, chair of the Department of History and Madden-Hennebry Professor of History, and Elliott Visconsi, associate professor of English and concurrent associate professor of Law.
The program, now in its third year, runs for 2 weeks during the summer at the London Global Gateway and takes the form of lectures, workshops, and feedback sessions. It invites literature and history PhD students from University of Notre Dame, University of Oxford, King's College London, Queen Mary University of London, University of Edinburgh, and University of Aberdeen, as well as notable guest faculty, to embark on cross-disciplinary conversations and critiques of each other's work.
The Global Gateway seminars are open to incoming freshmen, and fulfill the University Seminar (USEM) requirement for First Year of Studies.
The 2015 seminar, led by Richard E. Donnelly, took place at the end of July and focused on historic fashion in the arts.
