January 29-30, 2015
Artist/Lecturer: Dr. David Schmidtz
In the words of the Visiting Scholar Program, “The purpose of the program is to contribute to the intellectual life of the campus by making possible an exchange of ideas between the Visiting Scholars and the resident faculty and students.”
We have achieved that goal every time we have hosted a visiting scholar. Each of our past “visitors” has demonstrated a stimulating intellect while engaging our students in a two-day round of class meetings, seminars, and public lectures. This has been possible thanks to the support of the Artists & Lecturers Committee’s generous assistance.
