We are very pleased to announce the 2021 MAA Committee on Centers and Regional Associations (CARA) Awards:
The Robert L. Kindrick–CARA Award for Outstanding Service to Medieval Studies recognizes Medieval Academy members who have provided leadership in developing, organizing, promoting, and sponsoring medieval studies through the extensive administrative work that is so crucial to the health of medieval studies but that often goes unrecognized by the profession at large. The 2021 Kindrick-CARA Award honors Axel Muller (International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds).
The CARA Award for Excellence in Teaching Medieval Studies recognizes Medieval Academy members who are outstanding teachers who have contributed to the profession by inspiring students at the undergraduate or graduate levels or by creating innovative and influential textbooks or other materials for teaching medieval subjects. The 2021 CARA Awards for Excellence in Teaching honor Christina Carlson (Iona College) and Geraldine Heng (University of Texas, Austin).
These prizes will be awarded during the April 16 virtual Business Meeting at the upcoming Medieval Academy of America Annual Meeting. Please join us as we honor these medievalists for their service and teaching.
