2020 Holiday Card


Each year at our annual department Holiday Party, we ask those in attendance to help us select the images that should appear on our end-of-year card for our donors and friends.

This year, our Holiday Party moved online (for a faculty/graduate student performance of scenes from Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and then some festive conversation), and so we’re seeking input from our readers.

Below are twelve images that have been popular on our social media platforms this year and that capture some of the people, events, and experiences of 2020, before and since Covid-19.

Visit tinyurl.com/2020holidaycardselection by this Thursday (December 17) at 11:59pm to share your ranked preferences.

The top six images — along with some other highlights — will appear on our 2020 holiday card, which will arrive to the mailboxes of our friends and donors in early January.

Thank you in advance for your help!

With best wishes for a restful and healthy holiday season —

Karin Westman, Department Head
