A new exhibition titled "Delaware Awake! World War I at Home and Abroad" will run from Sept. 3 through Dec. 7 at the University of Delaware's Old College West Gallery.

Calvert is the founder, director and chief editor of the John Dickinson Writings Project, the goal of which is to collect, edit and publish in print and digital editions everything written by Dickinson -- known today as "the Penman of the Revolution" -- on public affairs.

Calvert, who this spring is a senior research fellow at Yale University's MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, has research interests in early modern Anglo-American religious, political and constitutional history. Her work focuses on Quaker political thought and on Dickinson.

Her monograph, Quaker Constitutionalism and the Political Thought of John Dickinson, is the first of a trilogy of works on the Founding Father.
