Faculty Publications

The scholarship produced by the faculty of the Division of the Humanities displays the core academic values of rigor and integrity. Above all, each scholarly publication or creative work represents an original contribution to knowledge. We are pleased to offer you this selection of the most recent publications by Humanities faculty.

Have we missed you? All  faculty are invited to contact Alyssa Vincent with announcements of published works (monographs, musical compositions, DVDs, or proceedings from a conference you directed) and premieres (solo exhibitions or world-premiere performances).
