The Augustine and Culture Seminar Program seeks scholars in the Humanities to apply for the Arthur J. Ennis, O.S.A. Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship, starting in the Fall Semester 2017.

Ennis fellows teach three courses of the Augustine and Culture Seminar each semester. ACS is a two semester writing intensive interdisciplinary seminar, required of all first year students. The students are expected to write a minimum of thirty pages a semester.
ACS 1000 focuses on texts of antiquity and the Middle Ages, including Augustine’s Confessions. ACS 1001 continues the emphasis on self in the world through the lens of modernity, starting with Shakespeare and continuing to the present. The course gives attention to the Catholic intellectual tradition and its ongoing mission to defend the dignity of the human person, recognize the need for human solidarity, and serve the common good.
