Congratulations to long-time EphBlog author Derek Charles Catsam ’93, recently tenured in the Department of History at The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Well done! Winning a tenured position in history is one of the hardest tricks to pull off in academia nowadays.

Regular readers will note that Derek hasn’t always told us (me?) what he really thinks, has occasionally pulled his punches, perhaps out of a concern that untenured academics should avoid making waves. Those days are over! Time for the uninhibited Derek to shine . . .
