Andrew Erlandson has earned an honorable mention for the inaugural C19 Rising Scholar Prize. The Rising Scholars Prize is given by C19: the Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists to a scholar in the early stages of their career who presents the top paper at the Society’s biennial conference. Andrew’s paper, “Intemperate Reform: Crip Associations in Walt Whitman’s Franklin Evans,” treats the unexpected, queer associations formed through alcoholism in Whitman’s temperance novel and offers, through disability studies, a counter narrative to scholarly perspectives on nineteenth-century reform movements. The paper will serve as part of Andrew's dissertation on the relationships between disability and democracy in nineteenth-century America. Congratulations, Andrew!
