Farewell to Visual Studies - The Stone Summer Theory Institute 2011 - 17-23 July 2011, Chicago - Deadline for registration: Apr. 15, 2011

The Stone Summer Theory Institute is an intensive week of seminars, lectures, and panel discussions, which will be published as a series of books involving over 300 scholars. It is held each July in Chicago, organized by James Elkins. Fellows are not expected to present papers, but are asked to do up to 1,500 pages of advance readings for the seminars.

Fellowship opportunities:
Lectures and panel discussions are open to the public. Most of the week, however, is occupied by closed seminars, which are attended by 15 Fellows chosen in an international competition. There are 6 hours of seminars each day, with assigned readings, circulated in advance. Places are available for fifteen Fellows; accommodation is provided, and some travel funds are also available.
Applications are invited from advanced graduate students, faculty, artists, and administrators.
Full information about applying is available on the website. The deadline is April 15, 2011; successful applicants will be notified April 20.
