Gary Nash Emeriti Seminars
The Gary Nash Emeriti Seminars were established through a generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Liev Blad in honor of Professor Gary Nash
, a noted historian and professor emeritus of history.
An award-winning author, Professor Nash is considered one of the most distinguished historians of colonial and revolutionary America in the United States. He co-chaired the National History Standards project and has written several books including Race and Revolution
, History on Trial
and, his latest, The Forgotten Fifth
. He is also director of the National Center for History in the Schools, an organization designed to help educators teach U.S. and world history.
A special seminar series in his name is a fitting tribute to the life work and intellectual legacy of Professor Nash, who has been a tireless supporter of seminars for undergraduates and is devoted to improving the undergraduate experience.
