Stephen Burger Wins Curtis Teaching Award

Fifth-year PhD student Stephen Burger has received the University's 2015 Edward Peck Curtis Award for Excellence in Teaching by a Graduate Student.  The award recognizes Steve's teaching both in the English Department — where he has been working as a teaching fellow alongside Professor Ezra Tawil in his Early American Novel course — and in the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program, where Steve has been teaching for three years. The Curtis Award comes with a $1,000.00 prize, and will be presented to Steve formally by Dean Margaret Kearney at an upcoming reception (exact date to be announced). Congratulations, Steve!
