Local authors publish dozens of works
MIDDLEBURY — Nineteen Middlebury College faculty and staff authors, whose books were published over the past year, were honored at an annual reception at the Davis Family Library on May 2. An exhibit of books in the Special Collections room showcased a diversity of academic interests and research, from the life of Jesus to modern environmental policy to the philosophy and psychology of living well.
“I realize as I look across at these works that there’s a wide range of topics and forms,” said Professor Jim Ralph, dean for faculty development and research, in his welcoming remarks. “I think that’s reflective of the variety and vitality of our faculty and staff who have contributed to the works being celebrated.”
Ralph noted a common thread running through all the faculty and staff publications on exhibit. “They are the products of inspiration and the products of imagination. We here at the college take great pride in your accomplishments and we’re glad that we have this opportunity to celebrate with you.”
