Twenty-seven faculty have joined Boston College this semester, and two more will arrive this spring. A third of the newcomers join the Arts & Sciences faculty, with the others distributed among the professional schools and the School of Theology and Ministry. While most are in the early stages of their academic careers and entering as assistant professors, three arrived as associate professors and two are full professors. @BC presents a slideshow of nine of these freshmen faculty, including statements of their research interests, which range from the philosophy of science to possible gender bias in the study of sleep apnea. We will feature other new faculty in upcoming issues.
