More than 100 staff members work in the Division of the Humanities. We'll introduce you to our staff in this continuing series.
Assistant Director, The Franke Institute for the Humanities
Office: Regenstein Library, S-116
What do you like most about your job?
The people. From our great team at the Franke to my colleagues in the Division and beyond. The University’s most valuable asset is our community. I learn so much from the amazing people I work with every day.
What was the last good book you read?
Many of the books I choose to read tie in one way or another with our Franke projects. I am currently reading New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson. He gave a talk on communicating climate change for our Limits of the Numerical: Studies in Climate Change Mellon initiative. New York of 2140 is underwater; he describes it as a Super Venice.
You might work with me if you...
... are interested in teaching in the Center for Disciplinary Innovation, hosting an event at the Franke, giving a Wednesday luncheon talk, presenting in the Franke Forum series, or interested in the work of the Humanities Diversity Committee.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Chicago during the fall?
Strolling at Promontory Point and throughout campus and enjoying all of the fall colors.
