Pemberton named as a Distinguished Fellow

Dr. Michael Pemberton was named a Distinguished Fellow of the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum at the 2021 International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference.  This award recognizes distinguished scholars who have been in the field for more than 10 years and have made significant contributions to the field of WAC through scholarship, service, or innovative program administration.  Dr. Pemberton was recognized not only for his many scholarly publications about writing in the disciplines, but for co-founding and editing the first national WAC journal, Language and Learning Across the Disciplines, in 1994, for editing the field’s flagship journal Across the Disciplines for more than 15 years, and for founding the peer-reviewed book series, Across the Disciplines Books in 2014.  Dr. Pemberton was also commended for his ongoing leadership in the field, notably as the Associate Publisher for Scholarly Journals at the WAC Clearinghouse – an international repository of open-access journals, book series, and scholarly resources for WAC and writing studies researchers.
