Bright Ideas: 
A Scholar's Introduction to Interdisciplinary Research

by Dolsy Smith, Humanities Librarian

GW senior Liz Settoducato embodies the creative spirit and intellectual curiosity at the heart of GW's commitment to cross-disciplinary innovation. From classics to pop culture, queer solidarity in London to labor organizing in Florida, her academic journey has been adventurous, but writing or talking, she reminds us that ideas have the power to connect diverse points of experience. A serious fan of the Libraries, too, Liz reminds us that research is really about channeling your passions into collaboration and conversation — conversation with those who've gone before, and collaboration with those who can help you shape what is to come.

In Memoriam

Dr. Samuel Halperin, a longtime friend and member of the George Washington University Libraries Development Advisory Council, passed away this spring. Dr. Halperin began his relationship with the university in the 1970s, when he led GW’s Institute for Educational Leadership. An avid collector of books and maps, he also became a generous benefactor of the GW Libraries’ Special Collections, including the I. Edward Kiev Judaica Collection. “In his role as a member of the GW Libraries Development Advisory Council, Dr. Halperin consistently demonstrated his love of learning and his commitment to increasing academic research resources,” said Geneva Henry, Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian. “His philanthropy, leadership, and tremendous belief in the role of higher education were deeply valued. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”
