Faculty Laurels

A pair of longstanding honors were awarded in May, when a committee of College students announced its annual awards for faculty members who have contributed outstanding work to publishing and academia. Saidiya Hartman, a professor of English and comparative literature and gender studies, received the 45th annual Lionel Trilling Book Award for Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval. Anthropology professor Audra Simpson received the 59th annual Mark Van Doren Award for Teaching for her “love and dedication to the act of teaching.” For more, see the complete story on the Columbia College website.
