Peter Verovšek ’06

Peter, who majored in Government and German and was a Fulbright Scholar in Slovenia and later a DAAD Fellow in Frankfurt, finished his Yale Ph.D. in Political Science and is Lecturer on Social Studies at Harvard, where he received a Certificate of Teaching Excellence from the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning. His has completed his book manuscript on The Past as a Resource for Political Change. This summer he was married at Lake Bled in Slovenia, surely one of the most beautiful spots on earth. The wedding party went by boat to the island church, where Peter managed to carry his bride up the 99 steps to the entrance, “which is traditionally considered to bode well for the marriage.”
