New Faculty Wednesdays
New Faculty Wednesdays is a new initiative by the Kaplan Institute to introduce new tenure-line hires in the humanities beyond the boundaries of their own home departments to the larger multi-disciplinary community at Northwestern. These colloquia will allow new colleagues to form a circle of new acquaintances, and will permit faculty and doctoral students from many corners of the University to encounter the scholarship of the newest members of the Northwestern humanities community.
If you are interested in attending a particular New Faculty Wednesdays talk, please email us
