Assistant Professor of English, Kris (T. K.) Lee will present the annual Humanities Faculty of the Year lecture on Monday, February 4, 2019, at 6 p.m. in Painter Hall 113. Lee, who has taught at The W since 2015 in the MFA program in Creative Writing, and who also teaches Creative Writing, Playwriting, and American Literature in our undergraduate English program, will give his talk on "The Elephant in the Room Wants a Cup of Coffee," a good-humored, engaging talk about the impact visualization can have on problem-solving and how ridiculously easy it is for the problem-solver to stop saying No and start being In-The-Know. The lecture is open to the public and the campus community, and a reception will follow.
