Quotes

I just want to thank you for a wonderful, productive semester at BUCH. It was truly a gift to have a “room of my own,” but within such a vibrant community of scholars. I was able to finish my book, start two new projects, design two new courses, and read some inspiring new (and old) texts… and I still only accomplished about a third of what I had hoped to. But the very best part was meeting and interacting with a fabulous group of fellow Fellows, some of whom have already become steadfast friends and colleagues.

Thank you, in a broader sense, for all of BUCH’s efforts to keep the Humanities on BU’s (and by extension, the world’s) radar, and to create spaces – both physical and virtual – that enable all of us to enrich and showcase our work.

It was an absolutely marvelous semester. I only wish I could have another.

– Joanna Davidson, Junior Faculty Fellow, Fall 2014
