Mandel Lectures in the Humanities Publications

Recently the Mandel Lectures in the Humanities, a new book series with Brandeis University Press, was launched to critical acclaim with books by James Wood and David Nirenberg. Following this launch, the New York Review of Books also featured a full-page ad highlighting this series.

Launched in 2011, the Mandel Lectures promotes active engagement with the humanities at Brandeis and beyond.  Visits by prominent scholars each consist of three lectures and an informal seminar for the Brandeis community, culminating in a publication by Brandeis University Press/ University Press of New England.

The Mandel Lectures are unique in their rotation of disciplines or fields within the humanities and humanistic social sciences: the speakers have ranged from historians to literary critics, from classicists to anthropologists. The published series of books reflects the interdisciplinary mission of the center and the wide range of extraordinary work being done in the humanities today.
