Matsuda wins 2006 Richard Ohmann Award

February 7, 2007

Paul Kei Matsuda, associate professor of English, has been named the winner of the 2006 Richard Ohmann Award for his article "The Myth of Linguistic Homogeneity in U.S. College Composition" which appeared in the July 2006 issue of College English.

According to the National Council of Teachers in English, Matsuda presents a broadly researched, politically, and pedagogically compelling argument in his article. “He invites us to examine our underlying assumptions about language in the composition classroom, and in the process, creates some disturbance in our approaches to our students' language — a disturbance that we think has been a long time coming in our discipline.” Read about Matsuda’s award in more detail at http://www.ncte.org/college/section/featured/107818.htm.
