Talk about a well-deserved award. Jay Dolmage is the co-winner of the first annual Theresa Enos award for best Rhetoric Review essay of the year. Jay's article on the Greek figure Hephaestus (see issue 25.2 if you haven't yet read it) was such a smart and interesting piece of work. Rare that an article says something new about a specific area *and* has wide implications, but this research does just that. An important piece for people in disability studies and bodily rhetorics, but ALSO interesting and useful for anybody interested in history and identity politics. Jay was a student in the first grad class I taught at Miami (research methods in comp) and taught me a whole lot! A hearty congrats, man.
