Harper appointed to humanities post




Princeton NJ -- Mary Harper, a scholar of 19th century French culture, has been named associate director of Princeton's new Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, which brings exceptional postdoctoral scholars to campus for three years of research, teaching, weekly discussions and other informal gatherings.

The recipient of a Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of Wisconsin, Harper also has studied in England, France and Germany. Since 1984, she has been a lecturer in Romance languages, teaching French and European literatures. For two years, she served as acting associate director of the Society of Fellows. Her new appointment follows a national search.

The society is directed by Alexander Nehamas, the Edmund Carpenter II Class of 1943 Professor in the Humanities and chair of the Humanities Council, in consultation with an interdisciplinary group of faculty fellows consisting of Harold Foster, Anthony Grafton, Simon Levin, Emily Martin, Susan Naquin, Joyce Carol Oates and Michael Wood.
