Summer and Fall Updates

It has been a while since I posted here. It’s not because there hasn’t been anything interesting going on; on the contrary, there has been a lot-almost—“too much—” thank God all going mostly in the right direction.

  • A busy summer in Uganda working at BLI with the caretakers: consolidating a partnership between BLI and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kasana-Luweero leading to the signing of an MOU and a lease of 180 acres of land at Nandere; organizing a workshop on BLI’s strategic plan, and finalizing plans for its Nandere campus.
  • Discussions of my forthcoming book courtesy of events sponsored by the Kellogg and Kroc Institutes at the University of Notre Dame. I am grateful for the ongoing support of my colleagues and the Notre Dame community in examining the manuscript and themes of Who Are My People?
  • A fellowship at the University of Gothenburg, at the invitation of Professor Arne Rasmusson, — involving a workshop and a public lecture on the Who Are My People book project in the department of the History of Ideas. The lecture can be temporarily found here. You would recall that this was also the subject of the Henry Martyn lectures I delivered at Cambridge in 2017.
