Africana Research Center director receives award

Lovalerie King, assistant professor of English and women's studies and director of the Africana Research Center, received the College Language Association (CLA) Creative Scholarship Award for her monograph, "Race, Theft and Ethics: Property Matters in African American Literature." The CLA is one of the premier organizations for the study of African American literature and culture. "Race, Theft and Ethics" shows how African American literature deals with the racialized history of unequal economic opportunity in highly complex and nuanced ways, and illustrates that, for many authors, an essential aspect of their work involved contemplating the tensions between a given code of ethics and a moral course of action.
