University glass-blower Jason Dibbs fires up some glassware.
Six University of Alberta-affiliated authors have been nominated for the Writers Guild of Alberta’s 2013 Alberta Literary Awards.
Brian Evans, professor emeritus in the Department of History and Classics and expert in Canada-China relations, is up for the Wilfrid Eggleston Award for Nonfiction for Pursuing China: Memoir of a Beaver Liaison Officer (U of A Press).
Pursuing China, which was launched to commemorate the Department of East Asian Studies’ 30th anniversary, blends memoir and history to draw a vivid picture of China and its cultural outreach over the past three decades. Evans comments on everything from the Cold War and China’s Cultural Revolution to Canada’s relations with China, the cultural impact of the overseas Chinese community on the Canadian Prairies and the current impact of China on Canadian higher education.
Jenna Butler, alumna and creative writing instructor with the Faculty of Extension, is nominated for the Stephan G. Stephansson Award for Poetry for her book of poetry, Wells (U of A Press).
Wells draws on Butler’s own experiences of her grandmother’s disappearance into senile dementia to reassemble a sensual world in long-poem form.
“We work with talented authors every day and it is especially joyful for us when they are recognized for their contributions,” says Linda Cameron, director of the U of A Press.
