Hall Center honors KU's humanities faculty authors

LAWRENCE -- The Hall Center for the Humanities at the University of Kansas announces the third annual Celebration of Books in honor of KU humanities faculty. The event will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. March 3 in the conference hall at the Hall Center for the Humanities. The event is free and open to the public.

Over the past few years, KU has rewarded teaching excellence, courtesy of the William T. Kemper Foundation. By contrast, there are fewer plaudits for research excellence. To enhance the recognition of research successes, each year the Hall Center organizes the Celebration of Books Published by Humanities Faculty.

In the past year, 27 members of the humanities, social sciences and fine arts faculties published 30 books on varying topics ranging from Hausa songs to cities on the plains. Many of these books will be on display during the reception that will begin the event.

The event also will feature a short program during which faculty authors Jonathan Earle, associate professor of history; Beverly Mack, associate professor of African/African-American studies; and Donald Worster, Hall distinguished professor of American history, will discuss their books and take audience questions.

For more information please contact the Hall Center at or call (785) 864-7822.
