Despite the COVID-19 disruptions our wonderful students continue to achieve impressive goals. Congratulations to Margaret Geoga and Federico Zangani, who successfully defended their dissertations in the past month. Very well done, especially given the extraordinary pressures of this unique and challenging period. Regretably we do not have a photo of Maggie and her committee, but hopefully that will be remedied some day.
Silvia Štubňová was one of six PhD recipients across the disciplines to receive the honor of a Visiting Assistant Professorship for the Spring 2020 semester. Through this award Silvia was supported to design and teach her own class. Titled “Life on the Nile: Ancient Egypt beyond the Pharaohs", it has been well-received by her students and will be a strong addition to her curriculum vitae. You continue to develop your talents, Silvia, congratulations!
Congratulations to Silvia, who successfully defended her dissertation today! With her are her committee members, Professors James Allen, Leo Depuydt, Matthew Rutz and, using the Zoom application to connect from EPHE (Paris), Andreas Stauder. Excellent work, Silvia!
