Congratulations to Jeremy Schipper!

Kudos to Jeremy Schipper of Temple U,  a friend and colleague who is very deserving of being awarded a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship!

As a Guggenheim Fellow, Schipper will be writing a book currently titled Demark Vesey’s Bible: Biblical Interpretation and the Trial that Changed a Nation. In 1822, Denmark Vesey, a formerly enslaved man of African descent, was convicted of plotting an insurrection in Charleston, South Carolina. The book focuses on uses of biblical texts during Vesey’s trial and its aftermath.
