In February, Tom Burke joined the team at the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities at Northwestern University. The Kaplan Institute was established to organize and promote the kind of expansive, interdisciplinary discussion and debate that characterizes leading-edge humanities scholarship today. The Institute cultivates this work through an annual fellowship program for NU faculty, humanities courses for undergraduates, invited lectures, Institute-sponsored research workshops, and a quarterly Artist-in-Residence program.
