Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Office of the Provost, I am pleased to welcome you again to this ninth annual display of our collective scholarly productivity. Once again, St. John’s faculty have produced more than 30 books since April of last year, testifying to the continuing intellectual activity of the faculty.

It is an axiom of the academy that the scholarly life of the faculty is its intellectual heart, and to thrive that life must be shared, tested, discussed and celebrated. Our students deserve nothing less than teaching that grows from our individual, disciplinary investigations of the world and the best scholarship of our contemporaries; these books are the tools of that engagement.

To each of our contributors, congratulations, and to all our colleagues, we anticipate honoring you.

James Benson
Vice Provost
