Transdisciplinary book prize for socially engaged humanites scholarship, coming up!

asu flyerI’m thrilled to be receiving the book prize of the Institute for Humanities Research for transdisciplinary “socially engaged humanities scholarship.” That my work crosses disciplines is not a surprise — the Library of Congress gave my first book 11 subject headings, I think. But it’s humbling to have Writing with Scissors placed with the work of environmental activists like Rob Nixon, innovative scholars of colonialism and empire, like Claudia Sadowski-Smith and Silvia Spitta, and people who dig into the culture of objects and design things, like Prasad Boradkar, and innovative thinkers about art like Ron Broglio. If you’re in the Phoenix area, do come. I’ll be speaking Oct. 9, 4 pm.
