Marilee Lindemann wins award!

With permission, an email from Professor William A. Cohen:
Dear LGBTQI Friends, Colleagues, and Allies,

It is a great pleasure to inform you that our own Marilee Lindemann is
the recipient of a Michael Lynch Service Award from the
Gay-Lesbian/Queer Caucus of the Modern Language Association of America
for 2007. The award honors Marilee's extensive service in building and
directing the LGBT Studies program at the University of Maryland, as
well as her innovative scholarship and teaching in queer studies.

The Michael Lynch Service Award is meant, in Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's
words, "to publicize and celebrate--and as widely as possible--the
range, the forms, the energy, and the history of queer activism by
academics." The prize will be awarded at the MLA Convention in Chicago
later this month.

Please join me in congratulating Marilee for this impressive and
well-deserved honor.

Best wishes for the end of the semester,


William A. Cohen
Associate Professor
Department of English
University of Maryland
College Park, MD 20742
Congrats Dr. Lindemann!!!
