English professor recipient of Doyle Humanities Teaching Award
Berger joined the USD English Department nearly four years ago. In addition to publishing several articles, he has authored the book, “Antebellum at Sea: Maritime Fantasies in Nineteenth-Century America,” published in 2012 by the University of Minnesota Press. Berger was honored with the 2013 Doyle Humanities Teaching Award for his outstanding classroom instruction and mentoring, including working closely with students on almost 30 theses and dissertations.
“He is a superb classroom teacher whose students routinely rate him among the best in the College of Arts & Sciences,” noted Emily Haddad, Ph.D., professor of English and associate dean in the College of Arts & Sciences.
Berger received his Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut, a M.A. in English from the University of Vermont and his B.S. in history and English from Central Connecticut State University. A photo of Berger is available for download at www.usd.edu/press/news/images/releases/Jason_Berger.jpg.
Made possible thanks to a gift from Monsignor James Michael Doyle, former chair of religious studies at USD and a prominent theologian inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame, the Doyle Award is presented annually to an outstanding teacher in the Humanities Division of the College of Arts & Sciences.
