A&H Book Talks

“A&H Book Talks” is a series of talks featuring department faculty and their recent publications.

“Books represent a significant scholarly accomplishment, a chance for scholars to fully develop their thinking with a degree of freedom typically not possible in journal publications,” said William Gaudelli, Department Chair and Associate Professor of Social Studies and Education, who conceived and developed the series. “[A&H Book Talks] represents a chance for the faculty to go public with their work in a local context, as we often do not have the time to focus on the great insights our colleagues offer to the wider field.”

We have for a more modern format for the book talks, which include respondents from the greater New York City area to provide insights into each book’s topic. Further, the series provides a free, public forum in which scholars from TC and scholars and/or experts from the field will engage in conversations about scholarship and real-world practice.

“I see these as community events,” Gaudelli said. “Ones that will give us an opportunity to share collegially in each other's successes, so hopefully colleagues will attend, scholars from nearby as well as students and the larger community.”
