The Hamilton Award is one of the highest honors of literary achievement given to published authors at The University of Texas at Austin. This year’s winners were announced Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the Four Seasons Hotel.
The Hamilton Awards are named in honor of Professor Robert W. Hamilton, the Minerva House Drysdale Regent Chair-Emeritus in Law. Hamilton was chair of the Co-op Board from 1989 to 2001 and was in large measure responsible for the Co-op’s uncommon growth and profitability during that period.
Among the winners were:
Elizabeth J. Mueller, Ph.D., associate professor of Community and Regional Planning and Social Work, School of Architecture; and Sarah Dooling, Ph.D., assistant professor, School of Architecture, were awarded the $5,000 Best Research Paper Award for “Sustainability and Vulnerability: Integrating Equity into Plans for Central City Redevelopment" (Journal of Urbanism Vol. 4, No. 3, Nov. 2011).
