On Nov. 16, Sarah Hogan, a new assistant professor in English, received the Arthur O. Lewis Award at the annual meeting of the Society for Utopian Studies.
The Lewis award, given annually by the organization, recognizes the best paper by a younger scholar (generally defined as untenured) presented at the previous conference. Hogan received the award for “What More Means Now: Utopia, Occupy, and the Commons,” her essay on the continued legacy and contemporary relevance of Thomas More’s “Utopia.”
The essay was published this fall in “Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies,” and will be reprinted in the forthcoming anthology, “The Next Generation: Emerging Voices in Utopian Studies.”
