American History and American Thought at St. Edward's University
In January of 2012, Robert Shetterly was invited to spend a week at St. Edward's University as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows program. He was invited by the University's Kozmetsky Center of Excellence in Global Finance.
This is what the Director of the Kozmetsky Center, Dr. Elisa Díaz-Martínez, had to say about the visit.
"Robert interacted with approximately 300 people in a variety of forums including class visits, one-on-ones, a self-portrait workshop and a public lecture. The local PBS station, KLRU, followed him throughout the week and will air a short video on his visit soon. His visit was also part of Light/ The Holocaust Humanity Project led by Ballet Austin. As a highlight of his visit, the self-portrait workshop, which inspired many of our students and helped them reflect on future steps in their personal and professional lives.
Robert’s Americans Who Tell the Truth has become a distinctive and profound way of teaching American History and American Thought. In many European countries, his work would be an extraordinary tool for many courses on citizenship, human rights and ethics. His work will help us advance towards common understanding and tolerance. He is an engaging and dynamic speaker and loves interacting with college students.
St. Edward’s University has been privileged to host him." -- Dr. Elisa Díaz Martínez
