“Fits and Starts”

Conversations with Faculty about Scholarship and Creativity

Co-sponsored by Ladd Library, these informal talks allow faculty to discuss their intellectual and creative endeavors, focusing particularly on a work in progress (or work recently completed).  These conversations might illuminate the struggles and successes of the project, explain how ideas were refined and tested, note how texts or performances took shape, and explore how collaboration with–and feedback from–others informed the work.
