Past Carthage Symposia

The Carthage Symposium is an innovative academic program that allows students to explore a topic through the lenses of two completely different fields. Two faculty members from different academic departments — and often different academic divisions — team up to teach a single course.

Here are some of the past Carthage Symposia offered by faculty:

  • The Stages of Life: A Woman’s Experience — English and Women’s and Gender Studies/Sociology
  • Aquatic Ecology and Hydrology — Biology and Geography and Earth Science
  • The Other: Race, Ethnicity and Gender in the Ancient World — Classics and Sociology
  • Elements of Technology-Based Business Careers — Physics and Business Administration
  • The Other: Race, Ethnicity and Gender in the Ancient World — Humanities and Women’s and Gender Studies
  • Applied Statistics and Introduction to GIS — Business Administration and Geography and Earth Science
  • Ancient and Modern Cosmologies: God and the Universe — Physics and Religion
  • Art and Literature in the American Century — Art and English
