Role(s) held in the Humanistic Studies Program:

What I have gained from studying the Humanities:

To co-opt a metaphor from one of Gandhi’s political treatises, the Humanities are like a banyan tree with its many branches. I’m a student of these branches, and as such, I am firmly rooted in a scholarly tradition that offers exciting, new possibilities for historical understanding and learning through engagement with peer disciplines.
