Fellows in Residence
Once each month, the resident fellows of the Hall Center (including four humanities research fellows, one creative research fellow, two Sias graduate fellows, and the Hall distinguished chair) meet as a seminar. On each occasion, one of the fellows will offer remarks on some aspect of his/her work in progress. These seminars are open to all interested faculty and graduate students.

The former director of public affairs at the Kansas City Public Library, he was the Simons Public Humanities Fellow at the Hall Center in 2013-14.
