Bill Smith sent us this post to keep us informed of his current activities. Congratulations Bill on your forthcoming presentation.  

I began my graduate studies at Rutgers-Camden in an effort to increase my content knowledge and improve my craft as a high school teacher. My experiences at Rutgers-Camden prepared me to continue my graduate studies at the doctorate level. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Early American History at the College of William and Mary. I also work as an editorial assistant at the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture. Working specifically with Professor Shankman prepared me to make scholarly contributions to my field. Work that I completed at Rutgers has since been accepted for publication in Quaker History and the Journal of Animal Ethics
