Students are encouraged to consider
a variety of projects: research papers, performances, original exhibitions, multimedia, or
innovative designs. Work may involve travel to libraries, archives, or
other institutions. The only restriction on the content of proposals is that they must relate to PHF's topic, Sex.
PHF Fellows are required to be in residence at Penn during their fellowship year and to attend biweekly seminars and other informal gatherings throughout the year, sometimes in the company of the Forum's guest speakers. Students are encouraged to
organize academic or cultural events for the group during the year according to their individual interests
(e.g., a speaker, museum or concert trip, etc.). Fellows also help organize and attend the spring Undergraduate
Humanities Forum Conference, at which they present their completed projects.
