At Vanderbilt, scholars of exceptional national and international stature may be honored with distinguished professorships. The title signifies that these professors are leaders in scholarship, distinction, discovery and teaching in their disciplines. The College of Arts and Science is pleased to announce that three professors were named to distinguished professorships in 2009-2010. Lynn E. Enterline is now Chancellor’s Professor of English, James A. Epstein became Distinguished Professor of History, and Tracy D. Sharpley-Whiting is Distinguished Professor of African American and Diaspora Studies and French.
