Professor Emeritus E.G. Crichton has been awarded the Edward A. Dickson Emeriti Professorship for 2022–23
(from the Academic Senate Spring ‘22 Newsletter)
The Committee on Emeriti Relations (CER) is pleased to announce that Professor Emeritus E.G. Crichton has been awarded the Edward A. Dickson Emeriti Professorship for 2022–23. Professor Crichton’s Dickson funded project, “Q+ Public Comes Out” will focus on developing a website and social media presence for the Q+ Public initiative, which aims to provide a bridge between academic and public discussions about and within the LGBTQ+ community. Along with the proposed web and social media presence, Q+ Public includes a magazine (of which Prof. Crichton is a founder and co-editor) and an impressive book series published by Rutgers Press.
Up to three campus Dickson Professorships are awarded annually, funded by an endowment from the estate of former UC Regent Edward A. Dickson. The awards acknowledge, publicize, and enable the creative and innovative work that our faculty continue to do after retiring. They may be used for activities in service, research (including creative works and performances), or teaching. At UCSC the awards are managed by CER, in collaboration with the local Emeriti Association.
