Dr. Don Holsinger (Professor Emeritus of History) has published a chapter “The Road to Ghardaia: Investigating a Community Deep in the Sahara Leads to the Study of Global History” in MENNONITES AND POST-COLONIAL AFRICAN STUDIES, published by Routledge. The book chronicles the lives of twenty-two academics and practitioners whose work spans from the immediate post-colonial period in the 1960's up to the present day.  Holsinger recounts how his experience teaching English in Algeria in the 1970's prepared him to become a teacher/scholar of African, Middle East, and global history.
