Congratulations to this year’s dissertation grant winners. The award committee reports: “It truly was a year for outstanding proposals. We had several that we thought worthy of support, and it was a difficult decision.” In the end, they decided to split the award between two worthy projects:
Lara M. Hauer (IUP): “Translingual Approaches to Tutoring Multilingual Writers in College Writing Centers”
Jessica Newman (U of Louisville): “The Space Between: Listening with Difference in Community and University Writing Center Sessions”
Congratulations to Lara and Jessica and thank you to the award committee for their difficult work!
