BOLLI Lectureship

Since Fall 2013, BOLLI has been engaging Brandeis graduate students to run lecture series and study groups. These lectures and study groups have brought BOLLI members countless hours of stimulation and pleasure, bringing scholarship and teaching prowess in American history, classical music, world literature and more. Our graduate instructors have infused our study group curriculum with their learning, bringing us courses in the history of climate change, Moby Dick, and Leonard Bernstein, among many other courses.

In turn, BOLLI Lecturers have gained knowledge, understanding and experience of inestimable value to them as developing scholars and teachers.  BOLLI Lectureships are sought-after and won in a demanding process that ultimately benefits both the curriculum and the scholar-teacher.

BOLLI is grateful to count these talented individuals as part of its Brandeis community.
