Eight scholars have been appointed as 2019 Harvard Horizons Scholars, studying topics from glass sea sponges to musical Esperanto. Harvard Horizons is designed to promote interdisciplinary sharing of PhD students’ big ideas and to teach students how to communicate their research to a non-specialist audience. Over the next several months these eight graduate students will work closely with the Bok Center as part of our support for Professional and Scholarly Communication. Congratulations to the Horizons Scholars!
