Keith Morgan (r) at the "Drawing Toward Home" reception

Quotes

The time to think, write, and develop a project is one of the most incredible gifts anyone can receive, and I was particularly grateful to be able to have this time here at BU, where it's too often the case that one is surrounded by fascinating colleagues but too busy to take advantage of their insights and expertise.

Being part of a group drawn from disciplines far from or adjacent to my own was particularly helpful--it helped me articulate why I'm drawn to some problems more than others, and why others might want to read what I'm writing. It was fabulous to have the time to learn about the intellectual work my colleagues in the humanities are doing. It is hard to overstate the positive effects that uninterrupted time to think has on the quality of the work we do as scholars.

I feel as if even on my deathbed, I'll still be grateful for the time I was given.
