Schachterle Essay Prize
Earlier today my essay "From Information Theory to French Theory" recently won the Schachterle Essay Prize from the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts (SLSA). The SLSA website describes the prize this way: "Lance Schachterle, founding president of the society, has established an annual prize in honor of his parents to recognize the best new essay on literature and science written in English by a nontenured scholar." For years the SLSA meetings and the work of its members have been a source of inspiration for my own work so I'm especially honored to receive this award.
