The professors teaching FYP courses represent an interdisciplinary collection of leading Sewanee faculty. They bring their own unique perspectives on what it means to be of a place, from a place, and how to find your place. Students are able to take part in panel discussions with each of these faculty members, and also choose a more specific topic for more immersive study.
Why does place matter? Places speak to us through our senses and their sense of community, through their stories and their history, through the environment and the culture—but the truth is, it takes time and attention to make a place your own. This program is a great way to get started.
