Lara Saguisag wins Popular Culture Association’s Ray and Pat Browne Award AND is nominated for Eisner Award for Best Scholarly Work

Lara Saguisag (College of Staten Island), a 2014-15 FFPP Fellow, has won the Popular Culture Association’s Ray and Pat Browne Award for Best Single Work by One or More Author for Incorrigibles and Innocents: Constructing Childhood and Citizenship in Progressive Era Comics (Rutgers UP 2018). Lara has also been nominated for the Eisner award for Best Scholarly Work for Incorrigibles and Innocents.

Incorrigibles and Innocents

 

Incorrigibles and Innocents examines the ways childhood was depicted and theorized in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century comic strips. Drawing from and building on histories and theories of childhood, comics, and Progressive Era conceptualizations of citizenship and nationhood, Saguisag demonstrates that child characters in comic strips expressed and complicated contemporary notions of who had a right to claim membership in a modernizing, expanding nation.

Congratulations to Lara!

    Hi, all!

    Matt, thank you so much for the shout-out! I do want to make a correction – my book has been nominated for an Eisner. Voting is ongoing, so winners won’t be announced till July.

    I do want to take this opportunity to thank FFPP for helping me develop and complete my book. I was fortunate enough to work with an amazing mentor – Shelly Eversley – and generous, incisive co-fellows. Their feedback and encouragement were essential to helping me refine my arguments and complete my manuscript.

    Warmly,
    Lara
