The Department of English congratulates Assistant Professor Allen MacDuffie, who won a Raymond Dickson Centennial Endowed Teaching Fellowship for the 2011–2012 academic year.
The Dickson Teaching Fellowship, a $3000 honorarium, recognizes teaching excellence in the College of Liberal Arts. Students and faculty nominate full-time faculty members who have taught for two or more years; a selection committee of three faculty members chooses five or six recipients based on student and colleague recommendations, teaching effectiveness, and teaching philosophy, among other criteria.
Allen MacDuffie, Assistant Professor in the English Department, received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 2007. His current project, The City and the Sun: The Rise of Energy Culture in Victorian Britain is an interdisciplinary work examining the evolution of the discourse of energy in Victorian literature. Awards include: postdoctoral fellowship, Harry Ransom Center (2007-2008); Howard Mumford Jones Dissertation Prize, Harvard University (2007).
