Joyner Library celebrates ECU faculty scholarship

Twenty-four ECU faculty were celebrated during the 2017 Joyner Library/Academic Affairs Faculty Author Book Awards during an Oct. 13 reception in the Janice Hardison Faulkner Gallery.

The event celebrated the accomplishments of Division of Academic Affairs faculty who have contributed to the scholarship of higher education by authoring, co-authoring or editing scholarly monographs published between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

Eleanor Cook, assistant director for discovery and technology services and academic library services, along with Dr. Ron Mitchelson, provost and senior vice chancellor for academic affairs, presented awards to this year’s recipients.

“The quality of scholarship at ECU is on the rise and is clearly reflected in the breadth and depth of these authors’ contributions,” said Mitchelson. “I can only applaud them for their collective creativity and commitment to the scholarly life. It makes me proud to be a Pirate!”

Published works represented a wide range of topics such as poetry, law and justice, and race issues.

“This recognition is a tangible indication of Joyner Library’s support for East Carolina University authors,” said Cook. “We are pleased to be able to continue this tradition.”
