College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Scholarship


Oberlin faculty members have produced an impressive array of academic research, ranging from poetry and fiction to scientific articles and textbooks. These compilations celebrate the remarkable productivity and creativity of our faculty. As teacher-scholars deeply committed to liberal arts education, our faculty members are equally committed to producing new knowledge and disseminating it.

Over the past four years (2012-2015), faculty have published 634 articles and book chapters; 62 books; mounted or screened 91 performances, exhibitions, and documentaries; produced 115 reviews, composed 35 poems, and five more of translations.

The contents in each catalog reflect the strength and vitality of our artists, humanists, and social and natural scientists. The range and depth of this scholarship is impressive, and confirms and exhibits our engagement with the world and the life of the mind.
