The Phi Beta Kappa Society is pleased to announce the appointment of thirteen visiting scholars for 2013-2014.
Each year the Society selects top scholars in the liberal arts and sciences to travel to universities and colleges where Phi Beta Kappa chapters are located. Visiting scholars spend two days on each campus meeting informally with undergraduates, participating in classroom lectures and seminars, and giving one major lecture open to the academic community and the general public.
