Alumnus Selected for Year-Long Fellowship

History Department alumnus, Dr. Anthony Di Lorenzo, was one of two scholars selected for a long-term fellowship through the Lapidus Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery. The Lapidus Center is part of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at the New York Public Library, which is one of the premier institutions for the study of African American history and culture in the United States. The Lapidus Center draws on the Schomburg Center's extensive archival collection to generate new knowledge on slavery and anti-slavery in the Atlantic World.

Dr. Di Lorenzo completed his PhD in American History at Loyola in 2016. He will spend the 2016-2017 academic year at the Lapidus Center working on his book project, A Higher Law: Anti-Slavery Radicalism in Early America, 1760-1800, which analyzes radical abolitionist voices during the Age of Revolution. You can learn more about Dr. Di Lorenzo's project and the other Lapidus Center Fellows here.

Congratulations, Dr. Di Lorenzo!
