Freshman concerns

Published: September 2004

Thirty one faculty will join Boston College this fall and winter. Ranging in age from 27 to 48, they come from across the U.S. and three foreign countries. Some have just completed their dissertations; others arrive with decades of experience at other universities. One experience they all have in common is that each has devoted thousands of hours of thought and work to an area of specialized research. In interviews with @BC, nine new faculty talk about their scholarly obsessions.
