Young Academic Alumni Lecture Series
The Young Academic Alumni Lecture Series (YAALS) presents lectures by alumuni who have chosen careers in academia and are in the final stages of writing their dissertation, are doing post-doctoral work, or are in their first few years of academic employment. Lectures are sponsored and coordinated by the Library. The Library partners on individual lectures with the corresponding academic department, the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Center for Global Peace and Citizenship, Athletics, the Office of Alumni Relations or other administrative units as the lecture topic suggests.
For more information on the series, please contact Terry Snyder (tsnyder, 610-896-1272).
