“Making Race Visible: Literacy Research for Cultural Understanding,” a book co-edited by Stuart Greene, associate professor of English at the University of Notre Dame, has received the 2005 Richard A. Meade Award for Research in English Education from the National Council of Teachers of English.
Greene collaborated on the book with Dawn Abt-Perkins, associate professor and chair of the education department at Lake Forest College.
A collection of essays and research from literacy and language scholars, “Making Race Visible” examines literacy and its ideological foundation, arguing for research that acknowledges racial and cultural differences in order to create more effective literacy experiences for students.
Named in honor of the late Richard A. Meade of the University of Virginia for his contributions to research on the teaching of composition, the award recognizes an outstanding piece of published research that investigates English/language arts teacher development at any educational level.
A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 1997, Greene specializes in composition theory, literacy, rhetoric and writing. He also serves as associate dean for undergraduate studies and Francis O’Malley Director of the University Writing Program.
