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
