York University English Professor Bruce W. Powe has received six nominations for the Media Ecology Association (MEA) Book Awards, set to take place at the University of Bologna in June 2016.
The nominations are for two of Powe’s books: Marshall McLuhan and Northrop Frye: Apocalypse and Alchemy (2014), nominated for the Marshall McLuhan Award for Outstanding Book in the Field of Media Ecology, as well as the Erving Goffman Award, the Susanne K. Langer Award, the Dorothy Lee Award and the Lewis Mumford Award; and Where Seas and Fables Meet: Parables, Aphorisms, Fragments, Thoughts (2015), nominated for the Mary Shelley Award for Outstanding Fictional Work.
Nominator Alex Kuskis, who teaches media studies and is on the executive board of the MEA, said, “Bruce’s work is well known by many MEA members and I think he stands a very good chance of winning at least one of these awards.”
Criteria for the various awards can be found on the MEA website.
Powe also has a new book, Decoding Dust (Neo Poeisis Press), set to be published in the spring of 2016.
