Four Professors Honored by Humanities Seminars Program

Four professors were honored with the Humanities Seminars Program's Superior Teaching Award at a recent ceremony. 

Professor Irène d’Almeida of the Department of French and Italian received an award for her course "African Writers and Filmmakers: Changing Scenes and Screens.”  Professor Melissa Tatum of the James E. Rogers College of Law was honored for her course "Manifest Destiny: Four U.S. Army Generals and the Modern Face of Native America." Professor Paul Ivey of the School of Art was recognized for his course "Themes in Contemporary Postmodern Art." And Professor Steve Martinson from the Department of German Studies won an award for his course "Faust."

HSP students choose the outstanding teachers, who receive monetary awards. These stipends come from the Humanities Seminars Endowment for Superior Teaching established in 1985 by founders of the program. This year's awards bring to $255,000 the total payments to the University of Arizona faculty from this endowment.

Since 1984 the University of Arizona's Humanities Seminars Program has been offering the highest-quality courses in letters, arts and sciences designed specifically for adult students. All courses are taught by present and former University of Arizona professors selected for their scholarly accomplishments and exceptional teaching abilities.
