Wake Forest news for faculty and staff


Former professor will have book signing

Peggy SmithFormer professor Margaret Supplee “Peggy” Smith has written a new book, “American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience,” that meticulously traces the architectural evolution of ski resorts from the 1930s to the 1990s. She presents a compelling case that ski resorts are a distinctly American type of architecture and one worthy of study.

Smith, who retired as Harold W. Tribble Professor of Art in 2011 after 32 years at Wake Forest, will have a book signing on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 1-3 p.m., at Ski and Tennis Station in Winston-Salem. If you miss her there, she’ll also be signing books on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 2–4 p.m., at Barnes & Noble, also in Winston-Salem.

Walldorf awarded research fellowship

Will WalldorfWill Walldorf, an assistant professor of political science, have been awarded a research fellowship from the Earhart Foundation that buys out his classes this semester in order to work on a new book tentatively titled, “The Democracy Consensus and Patterns of Forceful Regime Change in United States Foreign Policy, 1900-2011.”

The book focuses on changes in the nation’s mood about promoting democracy abroad from 1900-2011 and discusses ways that that that mood affects patterns of forceful regime change in U.S. foreign policy. It carries direct relevance to recent wars in Iraq and Libya, while also helping us understand current and future U.S. responses to the Arab Spring.
