Dear all,

I’m writing to invite you to join me in welcoming our new Assistant Professor, Sarah Guérin, a specialist in Medieval Art. We are delighted to have a new member of the standing faculty, and look forward to working with Sarah. Welcome also to Sarah’s husband, Dr. Nicholas Herman, who will be an adjunct assistant professor in the department as well as Curator of Manuscripts: Schoenberg Institute of Manuscript Studies, Penn Libraries.

In addition, please join me in welcoming Professor Lynne Lancaster from Classics and World Religions at Ohio University. This semester she will be the Visiting Williams Professor in our department, and she is joined here in Philadelphia by her husband, Professor Tom Carpenter (Charles J. Ping Professor of Humanities, Classics and World Religions, Ohio Univeristy).

Welcome to all! We look forward to getting to know you!
