We are delighted to congratulate the recipient of the 13th Warren R. Howell Award, honoring John Bender, the Jean G. and Morris M. Doyle Professor in Interdisciplinary Studies at Stanford University and former Director of the Stanford Humanities Center. His research and teaching focus on the eighteenth century in England and France; his special concerns include the relationship of literature to the visual arts, to philosophy and science, and to the sociology of literature and critical theory. He is a member of the Stanford faculty in both English and Comparative Literature.
The Frank L. Kovacs Numismatic Library, undoubtedly one of the largest and most complete reference collections on ancient numismatics situated on the West coast of the U.S., is now housed at the Stanford Libraries and was immediately put to use by students and a visiting professor throughout spring-quarter seminars.
The Baltic Film Series at Stanford concluded this May after eight film screenings that Stanford Libraries and the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) hosted during fall and spring quarters. The screenings featured Baltic and Nordic films focusing on various aspects of the history and culture of the Baltic countries.
