The University of Oregon College of Arts and Sciences honored departmental faculty who published books in 2013 at a recent reception in Gerlinger Lounge. Works published covered a variety of subjects including philosophy, history, comparative literature, East Asian languages, sociology and more.

“There certainly is no activity in this college that takes more time, effort and thought,” said W. Andrew Marcus, acting CAS dean, who presided over the reception. “It captures the essence of who we are as a college of arts and sciences.”
