Roger Thompson (BA’89, BAHC’91, MA’94) has recently been appointed as a research fellow with the Centre for the Study of Security and Development at Dalhousie, culminating from many years of study, research and publishing. The skills he learned at Dal have helped him enormously in his writing career, and his second book, Lessons Not Learned: The U.S. Navy’s Status Quo Culture, earned him a fellowship in Great Britain’s prestigious Royal Society of Arts. He hopes that reconnecting with Dal as a research fellow will lead to more book signings in the future.
