Humanities Council lines up distinguished visitors

A prominent North African author, a well known choreographer, a major historian, a leading Mayan intellectual and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist will be on campus this year as guests of the Council of the Humanities .

The council, founded in 1953 to foster teaching, research and intellectual exchange, will bring more than 30 scholars to Princeton during 2004-05. Nineteen of the visitors will spend a semester or more at the University, while the others will come for intensive shorter periods of lectures, seminars and colloquia.

The public is invited to talks by these visitors, which are announced in the Humanities Council's calendar and in the Princeton Weekly Bulletin .
