Swarthmore College


We’re always looking for writing to be published here on our site. Send us a question for Dear AF or your own manifesto for liberal education. Contact us if you have an idea for a piece you would like to pitch!

Professional Practices

We’re extremely interested in data or evidence about professional practices in liberal education, including innovative methodological strategies. Please talk to us, whether it’s about your own scholarly work or about an initiative or collaborative project you are involved in. Or just make suggestions! We want to find ways to know more about what people do in their classrooms, in their curricular designs, in planning their scholarship.


We’re thinking about what a faculty-based consultancy across institutions might look like. If this interests you as well, contact us; we’d like to hear more.

Staff Involvement

If you’re Swarthmore faculty or staff, watch for our Second Tuesday Cafe series, dinner discussions, research seminars, public writing workshops, and other events and programs.

Research Fellows

Swarthmore students should look at our current invitation to apply to be Research Fellows for 2021-2022 and consider taking one of the courses we teach semi-regularly.
