What I Love About Emmanuel:
Emmanuel College provides a fantastic learning environment. The faculty and administration have one goal - to make our College the best possible place to learn, live and grow.
I most enjoy working with my students. They are bright, engaged and curious. We have great discussions in class and in my office. I have been lucky enough to have a number of sharp and energetic research assistants who helped me prepare papers for presentation and publication. This past spring two of my students travelled with me to Turkey on a OneWorld Boston grant. We met some of the most important scholars, journalists and parliamentarians from every major political party as well as the US Ambassador to Turkey and Turkey's Minister of Finance. We also saw lots of Istanbul, Ephesus and Capadoccia. Best of all we will have the opportunity to continue our work together this fall as we share our experience with the Emmanuel College community.
