Ceresco Research Workshop

The Ceresco Research Workshop in the Humanities and Human Sciences is a faculty forum for sharing and discussing written work-in-progress — typically pre-circulated but unpublished research articles, book chapters, and other essays of about 15 to 50 double-spaced manuscript pages — in a roundtable session lasting 1 1/4 hours. It is open to all faculty members who are willing to read the paper ahead of time and participate in the conversation. The purpose is to help Ripon’s outstanding teacher-scholars bring research projects to completion and to provide a seminar-like setting for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

Each paper will be available approximately 10 days before the related session. Email Brian Bockelman for a copy.
