Book Talks


The publication of a book marks an important career achievement for many scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Scholars work for five (and usually more) years on a single project. Started in 2022, the CHaSS Book Talks Series provides CHaSS the opportunity to celebrate faculty achievement, learn more about our colleagues’ impressive research and creative works, and create a robust intellectual community in the college.

All meetings take place in the Dean’s Large Conference Room — MAIN 340 (and on Zoom for our statewide participants)
