UW-Green Bay Prof. Harvey J. Kaye, Democracy and Justice Studies, offers a review of James West Davidson’s new book, A Little History of the United States, at The Daily Beast website. Kaye says the book struck a chord, in that he has “often thought of offering a course to history and social science students that would require them to tell the story of the United States in a limited number of words (say, a 5,000-word essay).”

Faculty note: Voelker channels Paine in Pittsburgh lecture

Historian David Voelker, associate professor of Humanistic Studies, recently delivered an invited lecture titled “‘To Begin the World Over Again': Thomas Paine and the American Founding” for Grove City College’s American Founders Luncheon Series Lectures in downtown Pittsburgh. The talk focused on what Voelker calls Paine’s “civil religion of reason.” He also reflected on how Paine might respond to our 21st-century challenges, noting: “I think that if Paine were to visit us today, he would ask us questions about where power has accumulated in our society and how that has affected the prospects of equal opportunities for all. Paine believed that the earth was an inheritance equally of all people, present and future, so I imagine that he would also ask difficult questions about how we are stewarding this marvelous gift.” Voelker also gave a “shout out” to colleague Harvey Kaye, whose 2005 book, Thomas Paine and the Promise of America, informs his thinking about Paine’s legacy.
