Meet VCU's Authors

Members of faculty in the humanities at VCU have an impressive record of scholarly productivity and are recognized, both nationally and internationally, for their significant contributions to our understanding of the human condition across cultures, throughout the past, and in the present. In partnership with VCU Libraries, our Meet VCU’s Authors series invites members of the Richmond community as well as colleagues and students from VCU and other local universities to come and meet VCU’s authors as they talk about their recently published books and answer questions about their work. All are welcome!
