Honors Colloquium

All SAS Honors Program students are required to complete at minimum one Honors Colloquium. Students who enter the SASHP as first-year students are required to complete a second Honors Colloquium, or an approved alternate: Byrne Seminar or a credit-bearing study abroad program/course.

The goal of the Honors Colloquium is to stimulate intellectual curiosity and discussion as well as provide students with an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Through discussions, lectures, film screenings, and museum visits, students will explore topics of social, scientific, and philosophical significance.

Technology, Food, and Yousourdough.PNG

What do you like to eat? What technology do you like to use? In both cases, why? What influences your tastes? Though they may seem different, food and technology are both artifacts of human culture. This year’s summer reading, Sourdough by Robin Sloan, tells a delightful story of people searching for new ideas in food and technology. With that as inspiration, this semester’s Honors Colloquium will explore a cultural history of food and technology. We will talk with scholars from across the university to examine how various traditions arose and where new developments may take us. Ultimately we seek to understand how food and technology both reflect and shape our cultural identities. 

Meets Wednesdays for 10 weeks
