Transdisciplinary Humanities Award Goes to Marita Sturken!


Congratulations to Marita Sturken--her cool book, Tourists of History: Memory, Kitsch, and Consumerism from Oklahoma City to Ground Zero was selected as the recipient of the first Transdisciplinary Humanities Award by ASU's Institute for Humanities Research late last week. While it did not win, Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucination of the "Mexican" in America was shortlisted for which I humbly thank the Institute!
