A campus-wide program of the College of Arts and Sciences, Themester focuses on multi-faceted inquiry into a variety of topics that change each fall semester. Themester fosters the exchange of ideas and connects the issues faculty teach in the classroom to students’ lives through courses, lectures, exhibits, films, and more.
The IU Cinema Themester series is a slate of films organized around the program's given topic, and curated to encourage discovery, growth, and engagement in the critical topics that impact our world. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
