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.
