This coveted prize recognizes “inspiring and sustained commitment” to address the “multivocality of America’s diverse social fabric; the scales of geographic assemblage that support political and economic ways of being; the often contested nature of the political nation; the intersectional vectors that operate through everyday life.” It rewards “great creativity, ingenuity, and courage” in the classroom.

For those of us who have been lucky enough to learn from and/or teach alongside Prof. Gold McBride, this is a much-deserved acknowledgement of her profound contributions to teaching in American Studies and in the AC curriculum.

Please join me in congratulating Prof. Gold McBride!
