· Brazilian literature
· Italian unification
· Metaphysics and mind
· Early modern responses to religious pluralism
· Reassessing British Romanticism
· Early modern manuscripts and printed books
· Classic Buddhist texts
· African-American struggles for freedom and civil rights

Many seminars and institutes take place on American campuses; others are held at sites in Brazil, India, and Italy.
