ESSAYS IN YOUR HONOR: Paul Scott, assistant professor of French, recently published his book “Collaboration and Interdisciplinary in the Republic of Letters.” The collection of essays is a festschrift, a special volume produced in someone’s honor. The book celebrates the career of Scott’s doctoral adviser, Richard Maber, a professor at Durham University. The essays examine types of collaboration among scholars that emerged following the Republic of Letters, a 17th century concept describing relationships among scholars. A release celebration for the book was held in Durham Castle in Great Britain. Scott’s book is available at Jayhawk Ink in the Kansas Union.
