Congratulations David Luebke!

Our colleague David Luebke is one of this year’s recipients of a “Faculty Fund for Excellence” award.

The Fund for Faculty Excellence was established in 2006, thanks to generous gifts from Lorry I. Lokey to Campaign Oregon: Transforming Lives. The fund is designed to materially enhance the university’s strategic commitment to improve its overall academic quality and reputation by supporting, recognizing, and retaining world-class tenured faculty.

Luebke is a historian of Europe, especially the German-speaking lands, during and after the Reformation. His latest book, Hometown Religion: Regimes of Coexistence in Early Modern Westphalia, shows how the ordinary inhabitants of one region in northwestern Germany managed to preserve relative peace and unity in the face of ever-escalating conflicts over religion during the period between 1535 and 1650.
