Dibs Roy Wins An Award

This just in from Sandy Baldwin:

"I am pleased to announce that PhD student Dibs Roy won the " *Richard Tuerk "Out of This World" Paper Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy"* at the Southwest Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Association (SWTX PCA/ACA) conference, held last week in Albuquerque, NM, for his paper on post-apocalyptic spaces. The conference website explains that "The Richard Tuerk Science Fiction and Fantasy Award recognizes an outstanding graduate student essay presented in the Science Fiction and Fantasy area. The award includes a prize of $200." The paper was originally written for an independent study course on nuclear discourses and theories of media technology. Well done Dibs!"

As soon as the Tenants have finished high-fiving each other, we're going to gather in the oak-paneled library in the East Wing and have Dibs read the paper to all of us.


  1. Congratulations, Dibs! And, uh, can I get directions to the East Wing?

  2. If you start in the central entrance hall, go left, past the reception room and the conservatory. When you get to the rotunda, the ballroom should be on your right and the East Wing on your left. The library is about six doors down the corridor on the right. If you get to the Japanese garden, you've gone too far.
