Visiting Scholar Louis Mazzari, Ph.D., Reflects on Teaching American History—In Istanbul

Georgian Court University welcomes Dr. Louis Mazzari, an assistant professor of American Studies at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey. He is presenting two lectures—one on American writer Philip Wylie on Tuesday, Sept. 30 and another talk on Teaching in Istanbul, Wednesday, Oct. 1. Reservations should be made through GCU’s Office of Conferences and Special Events.

“Last semester I met Louis Mazzari at an American Studies conference in The Hague,” said GCU Professor of History Scott Bennett, Ph.D. “He is a dynamic, articulate, and compelling speaker. Without exaggeration, he is among the finest academic speakers I’ve ever heard.” Currently on sabbatical, Dr. Mazzari is researching a biography of writer Philip Wylie, whose papers are at Princeton University.
