Associate Professor of Academic Writing, Tahneer Oksman, Ph.D., along with her co-author Seamus O’Malley, have been awarded the CSS Prize for Edited Book Collection for their book, The Comics of Julie Doucet and Gabrielle Bell (University of Mississippi Press, 2019).

From the CSS website: “The CSS Edited Book Prize recognizes high-quality, research-oriented, and multi-authored edited collections from the previous year that significantly advance the field of Comics Studies—that is, edited books that greatly add to our understanding of comic art and/or its historical, cultural, critical, or theoretical contexts.”

Dr. Oksman served as Chair of the Academic Writing Department during the Spring 2020 semester, and is currently on leave to continue her research. Congrats on this exciting achievement to Dr. Oksman and her co-author!
