Three College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences faculty members were honored with a 2019 Albert L. Sturm Award from the Mu of Virginia chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

Amanda Nelson, Charles Nichols, and Natasha Staley, all from the School of Performing Arts, and Meaghan Dee, School of Visual Arts, received the Sturm Award for Excellence in Performance and Creative Arts for their creative work, Shakespeare’s Garden: An Immersive Sound Stroll Through His Sonnets, Soliloquies, and Scenes, in which they lifted texts from the page to the stage, creating an immersive environment for audience members and bringing them into a closer relationship with the language and the meaning of the texts.

The winners were recognized at the Phi Beta Kappa initiation ceremony.
