The two classes currently offered this semester will expand to four in the fall, and two faculty members – Associate Professor of English Aviva Briefel and Associate Professor of Asian Studies Shu-chin Tsui – will become members of the department, of which Tricia Welsch, Bowdoin’s Associate Professor of Film Studies on the Marvin H. Green Jr. Fund, will remain chair. Read the Bowdoin Orient article.
