In this first Next Page column of the 2014-15 academic year, Allen Guelzo, the Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era and Director of Civil War Era Studies, shares with us what he would ask Dickens, St. Paul, Tolstoy, and Lincoln if he had the chance; which texts inspired him to study history; and which title he would recommend if you want to “fall in love with the Civil War.”
In this new Next Page column, Erin Duran, LGBTQA Advisor and Residential Life Coordinator, shares with us the name of the author he appreciates even more now that he knows said author is from his home state of Texas, which title caught his attention as a sixth grader (and the hit song played on repeat while reading!), and which authors he frequently recommends to students for their challenging (in a good way) discussion of LGBTQA topics.
In this latest edition of Next Page, Dan Gilbert, the David M. LeVan Professor of Ethics and Management, shares with us books that inspired his teaching career, his love of baseball (1,100+ games and counting!), and the activities he’s looking forward to as he shakes off the Gettysburg winter and settles into retirement in sunny Southern California. We will miss you, Dan!
