*Dolar & Zupančič are teaching on both Saturdays and Sundays, one session per day, with Zupančič going first.

In the coming weeks, we will send publicity for each seminar, reminding potential participants of the special auditing opportunity afforded by our online platform.  For $350, an individual can attend the full proceedings of a 3-day seminar. Auditors will not have access to recordings.

Our initial deadline for degree programs has now passed, but as indicated on our website, this was a “soft” deadline that guaranteed registered students a place in the seminars of their choice.  Places remain in all seminars for students who would like to pursue a degree program.  Our unique program structure this year allows students to enter as matriculated students well into the year.  In fact, it is possible to enter the program as late as October 1 this year.  You can apply for our MA and PhD programs here.

We would like to call attention to another unique feature of this year’s program, which unfolds over 5 months.  All seminars will take place on either a Saturday or a Sunday.   We hope that this scheduling will permit students to join us who have other professional obligations.  The discount offered this year for online seminars also makes this an attractive opportunity.
