What constitutes "public" or "engaged" scholarship? What are its possibilities and challenges for scholar/teachers in a liberal arts environment like ours?  This focused panel discussion draws on the wisdom of respected faculty who have not only done engaged scholarship and lived to tell the tale, but have thrived as dedicated teachers and traditional scholars in their own right. 

Presenters:  Michael McNally, Professor of Religion and Faculty Associate for Public Scholarship, Center for Community and Civic Engagement; Susan Singer, Professor of Biology and Laurence McKinley Gould Professor of the Natural Sciences; Nancy Wilkie, William H. Laird Professor of Classics, Anthropology and the Liberal Arts.
