Dissertation Award Nomination

I’m pleased to share news that my completed dissertation, “Beyond The Phantom Edit: A Critical History and Practical Analysis of Fan Edits” has been nominated for the Argersinger Dissertation Award.

The award competition recognizes exceptional dissertations on the basis of their originality, quality of research, and significance the field, as well as well as to the wider community. Each year, academic departments at KU are permitted to nominate one dissertation for this award. To be eligible, the dissertation must have passed its final defense with honors.

My dissertation is the first from the KU Department of Film and Media Studies to be nominated for the award, so this amount of support is much appreciated.
