The 2018 Wayne N. Aspinall Chair in History will take Dr. Michael M. Brescia to the Grand Junction university in the spring of 2018 to teach a course on the intersection of history and law. The award also involves giving a major public lecture, other invited appearances, and a generous stipend. Brescia is Curator of Ethnohistory at the Arizona State Museum, Professor of History at the University of Arizona, and SMRC’s Vice-President. Our warmest congratulations to Michael!
