After ten years in Austin, Texas, and nearly ten seasons
(and counting) of working and researching in Rome, I never
suspected that I would come back to teach at my
undergraduate alma mater, but I did know that there would be
a time I would move on.
In 2013, with fondness looking back and enthusiasm looking
forward, I was thrilled to be asked to join the Department of History at Saint
Louis University. That's right: after three years of
teaching in the Department of Classics at Georgetown, I've
now moved from the oldest Jesuit university in the U.S. to
the second oldest Jesuit university. I've also joined an
amazing group of historians, as well as a great
undergraduate and graduate program!
My sincerest thanks to my Georgetown colleagues in classics, theology, history, and English, all of whom made my time on the Hilltop so enjoyable, and a particularly fond thank you to all my students for doing the same.
