Also, check out the video below which features Emdin as the winner of this year’s Strage Junior Faculty Prize. The Prize was established in 2009 by TC alumna Alberta Strage and her husband Henry to recognize junior faculty achievement. Alberta also serves on both the President’s Advisory Council and the International Advisory Council for Teachers College. The Prize supports the production of a web video to highlight original and innovative work of a junior faculty member at Teachers College. All untenured members of the faculty in tenure-line appointments are eligible to compete for the prize by submitting an article, book chapter, paper, or other original product appearing during the previous year.
