Most of the courses consist of four two-hour classes followed by a social hour, with refreshments included in the tuition fee. Three of them—“Magical Realism in Mexican Short Stories,” taught by Sallie Kravetz in January; “Introduction to the Secular Philosophy of Humanism,” taught by Ron Parker in January; and “San Miguel in 1700–1810,” taught by Jesús Ibarra, the editor of Atención, in February— are one-day seminars with lunch included in the tuition fee. In order to keep costs low, all program staff and instructors are volunteers. Even so, we know there are residents of San Miguel living on very low incomes. For them we have a scholarship program, with a 50 percent discount, available upon registration in the Instituto Office.
