PhD student Lydia Craig awarded the Anthony Ellis Prize
Lydia Craig has won the Anthony Ellis Prize for best paper by a graduate student at the Comparative Drama Conference 2015 for “Politic Silence: Female Choruses in Lochhead’s Medea and Wertenbaker’s The Love of the Nightingale.” Lydia's essay will appear in Text & Presentation, 2015, where it will be designated as the 2015 Anthony Ellis Prize Winner.
The late Anthony Ellis was a board member of the Comparative Drama Conference who received his PhD from Loyola University Chicago. Lydia's winning the Anthony Ellis prize this year is thus especially meaningful to the Loyola English Department. Congratulations to Lydia!
