Nominations for the 2017-2018 Annual Engel Lectureship

Dear Colleagues:

The Lecture Committee invites your nominations for the 2017-2018 Katharine Asher Engel Lecturer.

As you know, the Engel Lectureship is granted to a Smith College faculty member who has made a significant contribution in her or his field. It is an opportunity for us to recognize the scholarly excellence of a colleague. The committee attempts to see that over the years the lectureship is distributed equitably throughout the divisions; hence, we strongly encourage nominations from all divisions of the faculty.

We invite you to suggest to the committee Smith faculty members you think deserving of consideration. Please accompany your nominations with supporting material, such as information on publications, exhibitions or other achievements deserving our special attention. The committee will supplement this information with a CV on file. If you wish to re-nominate a colleague, we would welcome new or additional information to support an earlier nomination.

Nominations should be submitted by March 1, 2017 to Jayne Mercier ( For your information, a description of the lecture fund and a list of Engel lecturers since the lectureship's creation can be found here.
