Professor Greg Pierrot wins UCHI’s Sharon Harris Book Award

Professor Greg Pierrot was recently awarded the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute’s Sharon Harris Annual Book Award, which is given to a UConn faculty member whose monograph best demonstrates scholarly depth, intellectual acuity, and the importance of humanities scholarship.

The awarded book, The Black Avenger in Atlantic Culture, analyzes the black avenger archetype and what meaning it has held, and holds, when it comes to racism and black agency in the past and today. You can purchase a copy through the University of Georgia Press.

Congrats, Professor Pierrot!
