HISTORY: Professor of History Elizabeth Blackmar is the winner of the American Historical Association’s Nancy Lyman Roelker Mentorship Award for undergraduate mentoring. Blackmar, who specializes in social and urban history, will receive the award at the AHA’s meeting in Chicago on January 6. “This prize honors not just innovative pedagogy but also mentoring long after the classroom experience is over,” noted Merlin Chowkwanyun ’05, who was among a group of two dozen former students who wrote letters on Blackmar’s behalf and organized a campaign for her.
