It is with enormous pleasure that the Literature Section share the news that our current ACLS Fellow, Mark Letteney, has accepted a position as Assistant Professor of History at the University of Washington beginning next year!  Mark came to us from a Mellon postdoc at USC and a PhD at Princeton with expertise in early Christianity, book history, archaeology, and the history of incarceration. He has contributed in many ways to the Literature and AMS curricula this year, teaching the 21L.457 New Testament in the Roman Empire this semester and presenting to the AMS colloquium on his work on Roman incarceration in February! Congratulations!

The University of Washington was established in 1861 and is the oldest state-supported university on the U.S. West Coast. It has been a hub for learning, innovation, problem solving and community building. Driven by a mission to serve the greater good, our students, faculty and staff tackle today’s most pressing challenges with courage and creativity, making a difference across Washington state — and around the world.
