Eric Welch (aka Chris…) has some great news to share:
His PhD dissertation, whose title was “God, Oil, and Politics: Hebrew Prophetic Texts and Dynamics of Regional Economy in the Southern Levant During the 8th and 7th Centuries B.C.E.” has been officially OKed at Penn State. So, as of the coming season, we will have to call him Dr. W.
And to top off the great news, Dr. W has been awarded a new position at the University of Kansas as Visiting Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies!
Way to go Eric!!
Here’s what Eric looks like when he gets something nice… :-)
