Dr. Andrew Thomas, assistant professor of history at Salem College, has won the 2008 Distinguished Dissertation Award for the College of Liberal Arts at Purdue University for his work entitled "A House Divided: Wittelsbach Confessional Court Cultures in Bavaria, the Palatinate, and Bohemia, 1550-1650."

Also, Dr. Thomas will be presenting a paper later this month entitled "The Burning of Troy: Dynastic Myths and Wittelsbach Courts, 1550-1650" at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America which will be held at UCLA and the Getty Center. That paper is based on part of his dissertation as well as on a special-topics class on the history of the Greco-Roman world that included classical mythology that he taught last fall at Salem College.
