Claudio Moreira ’07 PhD, co-authored an article with Marcelo Diversi, "Missing Bodies: Troubling theColonial Landscape of American Academia," which appears in Text andPerformance Quarterly (2011), was just named the "Best journalArticle" by the Ethnography Division of the National Communication Association.  The article was selected from among 16 nominated essays—already a competitive collection—andwas described by the jury as a "great example of important theory andauto-ethnographic writing with a focus on larger groups and issues ofpower that call us as an institution to task." Professor Moreira (University of Massachusetts) credits his success as a scholar to the great teaching and mentoring provided by his adviser, Professor Norman Denzin.
