Call for Nominations: Katz Distinguished Lectures in the Humanities
The Simpson Center is currently accepting nominations of UW faculty and visiting scholars for the Katz Distinguished Lectures in the Humanities series for the 2014-15 academic year. The deadline is Nov. 15. 2013.
The Solomon Katz Endowment in the Humanities typically supports up to three lectures each academic year: two by visiting scholars and one by a member of the UW faculty. Nominees should have excellent scholarly credentials and speaking abilities, and their work should appeal to a broad audience—faculty, students, and the general public.
Visiting scholars may be nominated for residencies of one week (Katz Lectureship) or one quarter (Katz Professorship). Visiting scholars give a public lecture as well as offer a colloquium on their research and meet informally with faculty and students.
Visiting scholars' amplitude of thought, crossdisciplinary interests, and ability to contribute to ongoing programs and emerging areas at the graduate level are highly desirable. We encourage nominations of distinguished figures from non-western countries.
