YCAR supports Associate-organized lecture series that allow for the development of a coherent thematic focus and ongoing conversations. Each Spring, the Centre invites proposals from Faculty and Graduate Associates who wish to organize a seminar series in the following academic year. In most cases, these should consist of three to five lectures around a theme that is focused enough to sustain an ongoing inter-disciplinary discussion, but open enough allow for wider engagement.
The Centre provides funding to assist with refreshments, room bookings, publicity and some speaker travel expenses.
Faculty and graduate associates interested in organizing a lecture series should complete this application form: https://laps.apps01.yorku.ca/machform/view.php?id=401063.
