Since the program’s inception, over 130 faculty from a wide range of disciplines have taught Calderwood Seminars.
They have designed courses in American studies and art history, chemistry and classics, economics and environmental studies, mathematics and music, and many more.
The majority of Calderwood faculty have never taught writing or a writing-intensive course before taking on a seminar. But even without formal training in composition or rhetoric, and in some cases even when English is not their first language, faculty find they have much to offer their students. In addition to their academic expertise, they are skilled at conducting research and making arguments, and good public writing requires just that.
