Please join Division of Humanities Dean Sarah Cole in welcoming Arts & Science's newest members from across the division.

Hosted by the Division of Humanities in the Arts and Sciences and co-sponsored by the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, the New Humanities Faculty Salons are an opportunity to meet new faculty members as they join the Columbia Humanities community. Learn about their current work while you enjoy conversation, drinks, and snacks with faculty and graduate students. By bringing together scholars from across the Division, we hope to open conversations across the wider Humanities community.

Faculty and graduate students from all divisions are welcome to attend. Wine and snacks will be served. Events are 100% in-person.
