Visiting Faculty at the Allbritton Center

The Allbritton Center sponsors experts from both inside and outside academia, to teach courses related to the study of public life that are not regularly taught by tenure-track Wesleyan faculty.  These include both the annually scheduled Koeppel and Harber Fellows and other courses taught on a less regular basis.  In recent years these have included:


  • Leila Buck, Beyond "the Veil": Representations and Realities of Muslim Women in the U.S.
  • Middletown Mayor Dan Drew, Group Psychology in Politics
  • Ric Grefe, Design for Social Change
