Prof. John Corrigan receives award of the Fulbright Distinguished Research Chair the most prestigious appointment in the Fulbright Scholar Program

Corrigan, the Lucius Moody Bristol Distinguished Professor of Religion, was one of about 40 people in the United States to receive a Fulbright Distinguished Chair this year. To be considered for a distinguished chair award, candidates must be eminent scholars and have significant publishing and teaching records.

Corrigan’s award will allow him to travel to the Netherlands, where he will spend four months in Middelburg conducting research as the Fulbright Distinguished Research Chair of the Roosevelt Study Center, a think tank for scholars researching modern American history and culture.

While there, Corrigan will meet with scholars in residence at the center as well as scholars and diplomatic staff at The Hague and elsewhere, deliver occasional lectures and work toward completion of his book, "Religious Violence and American Foreign Policy," which will be published by the University of Chicago Press.

“I am looking forward to engaging experts in the fields of diplomatic and religious history and to discussing international policy and its implementation with persons from various governments,” he said. >>Read on FSU Top Story
