After a long time away from class, eight professors will be returning to share their independent projects across disciplines in the arts and humanities.
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) plans to recognize the work of their Faculty Fellows and Academic Leadership Program Fellows with a presentation of the fellows' published books, art, films and other large culminating projects.
Fellows are faculty from different departments who are on leave from teaching to dedicate their time exclusively to working on individual intellectual projects. Fellows from different departments meet once a week to share their projects, exchange ideas and provide feedback to gain interdisciplinary perspectives.
The celebration will take place at Hyde Hall, a building established to support the Faculty Fellows program, in the University Room from 3 to 5 p.m. on Jan. 22. Students and community members are encouraged to attend.
This celebration has been occurring for several years and was formerly referred to as a book launch.
