Appointments, honors and activities
- John Larson, professor of history, has a new book out, titled “Laid Waste! The Culture of Exploitation in Early America.” The book, published by the University of Pennsylvania Press, provides a “350-year review of the roots of an American ‘culture of exploitation’ that has left us free, rich, and without an honest sense of how this crisis came to be,” according to the Penn Press. “Larson undertakes an ambitious historical synthesis, seeking to illuminate how the culture of exploitation grew out of the earliest English settlements and has continually undergirded U.S. society and its cherished myths.” Larson also has authored “The Market Revolution in America: Ambition, and the Eclipse of the Common Good.”
- Elizabeth Allen, professor at the University of Colorado Denver’s Department of Psychology, was the recipient of the 2019 Excellence in Research on Military and Veteran Families award for her paper “Between- and Within-Subject Associations of PTSD Symptom Clusters and Marital Functioning in Military Couples.” Allen teaches undergraduate courses in military clinical psychology and family psychology. The award was presented by Purdue University’s Military Family Research Institute and the Military REACH organization at an event sponsored by the Association of the United States Army on Nov. 4 at its headquarters near Washington, D.C.
