The Department of History would like to wish their students the best of luck during the final weeks of classes and exams for the fall semester.
Thanks to Drs. Robin Greene, Paul Quinlan, and Dr. David Orique, O.P., for offering fantastic talks as part of our "Making History" series. It was once again a rousing success, and the department is very thankful to the Gladys Brooks Foundation for supporting this initiative. Now it's the students' turn! Be on the lookout for our Making History Student Conference in the Spring of 2015!
Finally, the department would like to offer our most sincere thanks to Adam Hochschild for delivering this year’s Reverend Cornelius P. Forster, O.P. lecture. Most famous for his book, King Leopold’s Ghost, Hochschild discussed some of his newer work on World War I. The talk, “The War Within the War: An Unknown Story from World War I,” was generously supported by the Gladys Brooks Foundation, The History Department, and the Development of Western Civilization Program.
Recent Faculty Accomplishments
Let's offer a huge congratulations to our very own Dr. Fred Drogula, this year's winner of The Joseph R. Accinno Teaching Award. The award is given out annually to the PC faculty member who "best exhibits excellence in teaching, passion and enthusiasm for learning, and genuine concern for students' academic and personal growth." Congratulations, Dr. Drogula!
Our own Dr. Edward E. Andrews was recently interviewed by Dr. Franklin Rausch as part of the New Books Network's channel on "New Books in Christian Studies." He talks about his most recent work, Native Apostles, which looks at black and Indian missionaries in early America and the Atlantic world. Take a listen here!
Dr. Steven Smith recently published an essay titled “’A Rash, Thoughtless, and Imprudent Young Man’: John Ward Fenno and the Federalist Literary Network,” in Literature in the Early American Republic. He also recently received the Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Fellowship from the New York State Archives & the Archives Partnership Trust. Well done, Dr. Smith!
