Carleton Lecture

Formally known as the Emily Carroll ’99 Carleton English Guest Lecture, this college event is funded by the King Family Charitable Lead Trust in honor of the positive experiences of Emily Carleton ’99 at Bates College, and also her graduation from the institution. This fund will, at the discretion of the English department, support guest lecturers on campus for the benefit of Bates students and faculty.

The Carleton Lecture in spring 2015 brought Palestinian citizen of Israel, author, and journalist Sayed Kashua and the film “The Borrowed Identity” (based on his book Dancing Arabs) to the Bates campus.
