'Exemplaria' receives Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement

Exemplaria, an academic journal dedicated to medieval and Renaissance studies and    co-edited by Department of English Associate Professor Elizabeth Scala, has won the 2011 Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement from the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.

Established in 1987, the Phoenix Award recognizes the most improved scholarly journal regardless of its state when renovations began.  For Exemplaria, judges noted “significant development for this already excellent journal” over the past three years.

The journal is edited by four US academics: Noah Guynn (University of California, Davis), Patricia Clare Ingham (Indiana University), Tison Pugh (University of Central Florida), and Elizabeth Scala (University of Texas at Austin).
