The Department was well represented at the afternoon convocation ceremony on Friday November 15, 2013. Our Chair, John Kloppenborg, served as the Beadle and carried in the ceremonial mace, and Professor Jane McAuliffe (DSR PhD alumna 1984 and Chair of the DSR from 1992-99) received an honorary doctorate. Receiving their PhDs at convocation were our very own Jodie Boyer, Shari Golberg, Alex Green, Smita Kothari and Rick Last – congratulations!
