Five College Crossroads in the Study of the Americas (CISA)

CISA Activities

For information on upcoming and recent events, see Events. For information on past events, see the CISA Archives.

In addition to a series of public events, CISA hosts a Seminar Series open to all Five College faculty. CISA also sponsors an annual Student Symposium with a comparativist focus, held each spring, which gathers students from the Five Colleges together to share their work and ideas in a public forum. The symposium allows students to present scholarship or other creative work reflecting on the Americas.

Each year, CISA invites a number of new faculty to become fellows for a two-year period. Nominated by their deans, CISA fellows teach courses and conduct research in areas that express CISA's intellectual and pedagogical commitments.
