We are fortunate that Andrew Bond, soon to be “Dr.” Bond, will be joining the faculty in the fall as a teacher of American History and Civics. Andrew is currently finishing his Doctorate at Tulane in American History. Before Tulane, he studied History and American Studies at The University of Virginia. Andrew is an electrifying person, a deep and thoughtful scholar, and a powerful addition to what already is a star-studded department. Andrew was a long-term substitute in the department, and he already has very good connections with students and faculty. We are excited about Andrew and pleased that such a refreshing scholar is joining our community.
