Raven at 10 Announcement
A Unique Opportunity for Undergraduates
The Raven Foundation is observing its 10th Anniversary in January 2017. To mark that milestone Raven has partnered with COV&R to create a contest especially for use in undergraduate courses.
The Contest has been designed as a tool to generate excitement for mimetic theory, spark creativity, and deepen student connections to the global mimetic theory community.
This is a rare opportunity for undergraduates to be recognized by an international academic research organization. Among other prizes, student participants in the contest will receive a certificate of recognition from the Colloquium. For more details, visit the Contest page at the Raven Foundation website.
We hope that you will make use of the Contest in your fall classes. November 4, 2016 will mark one year since the death of René Girard. A wonderful way to honor his legacy is to encourage the same spirit of honest inquiry and daring innovation in your students.
Registration is open so you can register your class today. Simply click on the link at the bottom of the page and fill out the form with your contact information. After registering you will receive complete details about the Contest including rules, deadlines and prizes.
