The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is pleased to announce that Dr. Timothy Minella has accepted the offer of a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at Emory University’s Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry for the 2016-17 academic year. Dr. Minella was one of the first undergraduate students to be nurtured by the AHI and on April 6, he returned to Clinton to speak to students on history and science.

Dr. Minella was graduated in 2009 from Hamilton College, Phi Beta Kappa. He majored in physics and government. Inspired by AHI Charter Fellow Douglas Ambrose, Minella pursued an advanced degree in history. He received a prestigious Presidential Scholarship from the University of South Carolina to pursue a Ph. D. in the history of science. He received his doctorate in 2015, completing a dissertation “Knowing in America: The Enlightenment, Science, and the Early Republic.”
