Two Upcoming Lectures by New Chaired Professors

In a continuing series of lectures by Smith faculty members named to chaired professorships this year, two talks will be presented, on Mondays, Feb. 18 and 25.

Elliot Fratkin, the Gwendolen Carter Chair of African Studies, will speak on "Africa: The Good, the Bad, the Unexpected," on February 18; and Borjana Mikic, the Rosemary Bradford Hewlett 1940 Professor, will speak on "Structure and Function in Skeletal Tissues: Lessons from Might Mouse and His Lesser Known Cousins."

Both lectures, open to all, will take place at 4:30 p.m. in Seelye Hall, room 106.

This year's series began last November, when chaired professor lectures were delivered by Dana Leibsohn, Priscilla Paine Van der Poel Professor of Art History; and Rosetta Marantz Cohen, Sylvia Dlugasch Bauman Professor.
