New Behrman Professorships in the Humanities Announced
The Council of the Humanities invites applications for a new “Behrman Professorship in the Humanities,” a three-year position beginning in Fall 2015. The new Professors are intended to enhance the appeal and the continuity of the Humanities Sequence (HUM 216-219), and as a consequence to raise the profile of the Humanistic Studies Program and of the Humanities at Princeton in general. We aim to attract dedicated Humanities teachers from within our community to take a leading role in this course, and in the Undergraduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities. Please send applications by December 5 to Dr. Kathleen Crown, Executive Director of the Council of the Humanities.
