A Chance to Connect: Fall Phonathon
As of this week, students are connecting with alumni and parents by phone, asking for support of the 2012–2013 Annual Fund and Parents' Fund. Please take this opportunity to hear first-hand about what's new at Haverford and show your support for the College. This year you can give to one of six areas of the Haverford experience that you value most. If you prefer to give online, please take a moment to make your gift now, so our callers can be efficient in reaching out to others. Thank you in advance for your support.
Young Academic Alumni Lecture Series (YAALS) Highlights Recent Work
Join us for "Black Market City: Street Vendors, Elites and the State in Mexico City, 1700–1900" presented by Drew Konove ’04 on Thursday, November 1 at Magill Library. Visit the YAALS website for more information on past speakers, such as Brook Henkel ’05 who returned to campus on September 19 for his talk "On Kafka’s Things: Between Animation and Reification."
The YAALS presents lectures by alumni 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 Magill 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, Alumni Relations and Annual Giving or other administrative units as the lecture topic suggests.
