This includes research-oriented courses like "African American History in Iberia Parish, 1880-1900" and "Black Civil War Veterans in Iberia Parish, 1865-1877," both of which resulted in public-facing exhibits; student-curated museum projects such as Resistance Through Persistence: Enslaved Women's Culture in Louisiana; the teaching of our capstone "Research and Writing" course; and the employment of undergraduate research assistants for research in slavery and agriculture reform.

Richard, professor of history, is a highly regarded scholar of American intellectual history, the Founding generation, and Ancient Greece and Rome.

He has published eight books, in addition to providing contributions to professional journals and edited volumes, while also presenting his research before national and international audiences.

Congratulations to both of them on these well-deserved honors!
