PER Mini Courses

Each semester, PER invites distinguished scholars to teach “mini” classes on topics relevant to the scholars’ research interests. The class is typically held in two sessions. Scholars who give the Mini Course also hold temporary residency in the department and take meetings with faculty or Ph.D. students interested in their work.
