List for this year's reception.
April 11, 2006
On behalf of the Office of the Provost, I am pleased to welcome
you again to this ninth annual display of our collective scholarly
productivity. Once again, St. John’s faculty have produced more
than 30 books since April of last year, testifying to the
continuing intellectual activity of the faculty.
It is an axiom of the academy that the scholarly life of the
faculty is its intellectual heart, and to thrive that life must be
shared, tested, discussed and celebrated. Our students deserve
nothing less than teaching that grows from our individual,
disciplinary investigations of the world and the best scholarship
of our contemporaries; these books are the tools of that
To each of our contributors, congratulations, and to all our
colleagues, we anticipate honoring you.
