Letter from Our Director

At the Obermann Center, we’re in the privileged position of seeing projects through stages from the earliest ambitions to exploratory conversations to what I have come to see as “snapshot” moments—an initial presentation at the Obermann Fellows biweekly seminar, a reimagined syllabus, that first grant application, a sudden meeting of minds at a campus-community conversation, the eureka moment when collaborators connect, the instant students in our graduate institute recognize kindred spirits.
