Freshman faculty

Published: April 2008

@BC presents the final installment of profiles of the 10 men and 6 women who are new to the faculty this year. Among them are a classicist who describes how groups in Roman society—celebrity orators, doctors, and early Christians—were coping with the dynamics of membership and entitlement; a political scientist who investigates the “mysterious processes” that have changed the rules of constitutional democracy in the US; and an attorney looking for the proper regulatory balance that both protects intellectual property rights and provides a “rich commons” for use by artists and inventors.
