Sweet Briar professors are often praised for their excellence in teaching, and for the strong bonds they form with students. But their commitment goes well beyond the classroom: They are also fully engaged in their disciplines as researchers, writers and artists.

The 2011-2012 academic year resulted in an eclectic list of faculty accomplishments. For the curious, examples include French professor Maite Killiam’s book “The End of Art: A Comparative Analysis of French Postmodern Art Theorists,” poetry professor John Casteen’s travels in China, and the purpose behind theater director Bill Kershner’s trip to Edinburgh.
