Below are specific concentration areas at Holy Cross College. We invite you to check out details in each area and possibly participate in future lectures.

The Holy Cross Forum brings emerging scholars, students, and faculty into conversations which sharpen intellectual inquiry and spark curiosity. Each fall and spring, the Holy Cross Forum invites two advanced graduate students to share their research in a half-hour lecture, followed by a question and answer period. Participants represent disciplines across the humanities and social sciences. We welcome lectures on a broad variety of themes.

If you are interested in speaking at the Holy Cross Forum, please submit an application to Angel Cortes, Ph.D. at [email protected], including a 300 – word abstract of your proposed talk, here. Applications for the Fall semester are due by 15 August. Applications for the Spring Semester are due by 15 December.
