The 2009 ALSC Nominations Committee collected suggestions for filling ALSC’s forthcoming leadership vacancies, and after deliberation and a unanimous sanctioning vote by the ALSC Council, nominates the following for confirmation by the membership:
- For Vice President: Greg Delanty
- For Council: Adelaide Russo, Helaine L. Smith, and John Talbot
We are honored to announce that Adelaide M. Russo, professor of comparative literature and French studies at Louisiana State University and contributing-level member of the ALSC, has received the sixteenth annual Aldo and Jeanna Scaglione Prize, which is awarded by the MLA for outstanding scholarly work in French and Francophone studies.
Russo received the award for her book Le Peintre Comme Modèle: Du Surréalisme à L’extrême Contemporain, which looks closely at the connections of visual art and poetry in the twentieth century as well the inspirations that artists, poets, and publishers provide for one another.
