I had a lively and enlightening discussion about the issues of equity and representation in KidLit with the brilliant Dr. Sarah Park Dahlen, Bao Phi, and Kathryn Savage on the Loft Literary Center‘s podcast, which was released yesterday.

The journal Teaching English at the Two Year College, a publication of the National Council of Teachers of English, has awarded me and my collaborators their 2017 award for article of the year, for “The Risky Business of Engaging Racial Equity in Writing Instruction: A Tragedy in Five Acts.”
This came as quite a shock to all of us, but obviously, a welcome one.
The message we received from the editorial board follows:
“Dear Michael Kuhne, Taiyon J. Coleman, Kathleen DeVore, Renee DeLong, and Shannon Gibney,
“The Two-Year College English Association is pleased to inform you that you have been chosen as the recipients of the 2017 Mark Reynolds Teaching English at the Two Year College Best Article Award.
“Your article, “The Risky Business of Engaging Racial Equity in Writing Instruction: A Tragedy in Five Acts” (TETYC, 2016), addresses issues of central concern to our profession for the benefit of two-year college faculty and TETYC readership.”
Renee DeLong will travel to Portland next month, to accept a plaque and small honorarium at the Conference on College Composition and Communication on behalf of us all.
