Literature and the Law: Disciplinary Perspectives and Faculty Development

To Support: A year-long faculty development seminar series in the field of law and literature.

The English Department of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York, seeks to fund a year-long faculty seminar and series of lectures in literature and the law. The seminar will host six internationally recognized scholars in the field of law and literature who will deliver public lectures and run seminars for English Department faculty. These seminars will ensure the Department's new English major with an optional concentration in Literature and the Law has a strong intellectual foundation. Grant funds will be used to pay for travel expenses and honoraria of visiting scholars as well as small stipends and book allowances for faculty participants.
