Lynne T. Jefferson, associate professor and chair in the Department of English, has been selected to participate in the seminar on Slave Narratives that will be led by David Blight, Class of 1954 professor of American History at Yale University, on June 21–25, 2015.

The degree of competition for participation was intense—more than three times as many nominations were received as there are places—and Dr. Jefferson was only 27 faculty members selected for this seminar.

“I am honored to participate in “Slave Narratives: A Seminar for Faculty” at Yale University and to represent Saint Augustine’s University,” Jefferson said. “While my scholarship area is Nineteenth-century American Literature participating in this seminar confirms the long-standing intersection of literature and history. I look forward to sharing such an experience with the SAU community.”
