Sivils receives Modern Language Association honor

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Matthew Wynn Sivils, assistant professor of English, has received the Modern Language Association’s Committee on Scholarly Editions Seal for his edition of James Fenimore Cooper’s 1843 satirical novel The Autobiography of a Pocket-Handkerchief. Sivils co-edited the book with James P. Elliott of Clark University, and it will be published by AMS Press later this year. Volumes awarded the MLA Committee on Scholarly Editions Seal must satisfy a rigorous peer-review process that ensures the text and its apparatus conform to the highest editorial standards.
