Monday Mission, 4/26/10

Dr. Jason Wallace of our Department of History has been selected to participate in a summer program at Princeton University. Sponsored by the Lehrman American Studies Center and the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, the program will provide Jason with the opportunity to work with some of the nation's leading scholars on developing and adopting intellectually serious, compelling, and philosophically engaging courses that deal with the foundational principles of the American Republic. (By the way, this fall Notre Dame University Press will publish Jason's book, Catholics, Slaveholders, and the Dilemma of American Evangelicalism, 1835-1860.)

The world is better because of Jason Wallace's commitment to scholarship.
