The School for Advanced Research Summer Schedule

The School for Advanced Research, founded in 1907, supports innovative research and public education through seminars, lectures, and residential fellowships focused on the historically informed study of human societies. With the possibility of engaging members and Santa Feans in general with the work of emerging thought-leaders, SAR’s newest effort, the Creative Thought Forum, enhances the organization’s traditional mission of promoting creativity in the humanistic social sciences and Native American art. Integral to SAR’s success is the Indian Arts Research Center which promotes indigenous creativity through artist residencies and stewards a collection of nearly 12,000 works of Southwest Native American art.
