Congratulations to AAA member Katherine Lambert-Pennington (U Memphis) on receiving the 2011 Lynton Award! We’re happy to share NERCHE’s press release about this honor here.
The annual Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty recognizes a faculty member who connects his or her teaching, research, and service to community engagement. The award is designated for either pre-tenure faculty at tenure-granting campuses or early career faculty (i.e., within the first six years) at campuses with long-term contracts.
This year, NERCHE (New England Resource Center for Higher Education) is pleased to present the Ernest A. Lynton Award to Dr. Katherine Lambert-Pennington, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Memphis. During the past four years, Katherine has integrated her teaching, research, and service in unique ways that address issues of poverty, racism, inequalities, and social justice, particularly as they relate to neighborhood development.
