Shimabukuro Awarded Doctoral Conference Presentation Award


Karra Shimabukuro has been awarded the Doctoral Conference Presentation Award from OGS for the second year in a row. Her award last year was used to present at the Society of Cinema and Media Studies, as part of a preview panel for the upcoming Cinema Journal In Focus on Twin Peaks that she co-edited (forthcoming May 2016). This year’s award will allow her to present a portion of her dissertation on the English folkloric devil and monstrous landscapes in Anglo-Saxon literature at the International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo.
