The Department of History warmly congratulates our colleague Craig Heron on winning this year's Lee Lorch Award (formerly the Distinguished Scholar Ward) of the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT). CAUT presented the award at a banquet in Ottawa on Friday 5 May 2017. At the ceremony Craig then delivered an address on "The Public Intellectual." The CAUT Lee Lorch Award recognizes academics who excel in each of the domains of academic life: teaching, research, service to the institution and to the community. The recipients are individuals whose teaching, research and service have contributed noticeably to the lives of their students, to their institution, to their field of study, and to the community. This is a major honour and one that recognizes the major impact that Craig has made on many aspects of academic life during his long and distinguished career.
