Affiliated Faculty Request Form

Affiliating with the ILA connects you to a community of scholars whose interests intersect in surprising ways. By affiliating, you will receive invitations to attend interdisciplinary events hosted by the ILA, including symposia, conferences, informal lunches and wine-and-cheese receptions. The ILA facilities are available for the use of faculty affiliates, and the Detweiler room may be reserved for interdisciplinary events. As an ILA affiliate, a faculty member may originate or cross-list courses with the Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) and American Studies (AMST) majors. To insure expert faculty guidance on the individualized, interdisciplinary senior projects required of AMST and IDS majors, we refer students and rely on faculty colleagues in departments other than the ILA. When IDS or AMST majors design projects that match your expertise, you will have the opportunity to work with these highly motivated students.
