Visiting Scholars

A number of visiting faculty and scholars have been affiliated with the Center for varying lengths of time. Some visitors are here for the entire academic year, while others may be on campus only for a few weeks. While not all such visitors are sponsored by the Center, all they take part in the Center's activities. For more information about becoming a CJS visitor, email umcjs@umich.edu.
