Scott Marler visits the United Nations while recruiting for the Department of History

Dr Scott Marler and Dr Aram Goudsouzian were in New York during the first week of January 2009 attending the convention of the American Historical Association and interviewing applicants for the department's position in southern history.

Dr Marler had been in New York on several occasions, sometimes for several weeks in a row, but he realized that he had never seen the United Nations. During a break he remedied that deficiency by going with his wife Candice, who, as it happens, lived only a few blocks away some years ago. He remarked that given the current crisis over Gaza, he was a little surprised that there were no demonstrators in evidence when he was there on Friday.
