The life of Dr. Steven D. Neuwirth, a longtime WestConn professor of Engish and specialist in Early American literature and history, is memorialized in an annual lecture series in his name. Neuwirth helped to establish the university’s Honors Program and served as its first director; he also contributed significantly to the organization of a multi-disciplinary American Studies curriculum at WestConn. As Neuwirth was never one to shy from difficult topics, the first lecture in the series appropriately focused on the challenge of fostering religious tolerance and cooperation among individuals of different faiths in a pluralistic society. The series will continue with an annual lecture.
