The College of Arts & Sciences has announced the award of the 2013-14 Candace Bernard and Robert Glickman Dean’s Professorships to three tenure-track faculty, based on their scholarly accomplishments and promise and their commitment to excellent teaching. Among the three is Holly Goddard Jones, assistant professor of Creative Writing in the Department of English.
Jones joined the UNCG faculty in 2009. Her work has appeared in some of the foremost venues for both fiction and non-fiction and her stories have been anthologized in volumes such as “The Year’s Best New Stories from the South,” “Best American Mystery Stories” and the forthcoming “The Lineup: 25 Provocative Women Writers.” Her collection of short stories, “Girl Trouble,” has been translated into French and Italian, and the rights to her new novel “The Next Time You See Me,” which is an alternate selection of both the Book of the Month Club and the Mystery Guild, have been sold in the UK, France, Italy and The Netherlands. She received the 2013 Hillsdale Award for Fiction from the Fellowship of Southern Writers. She has had great success as a teacher of fiction writing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Bernard-Glickman Dean’s Professorships are made possible by a generous gift from Candace Bernard ‘67 and Robert Glickman of Wayne, Penn. Each award includes a salary stipend and a fund for research. In announcing the recipients at the College of Arts & Sciences’ End-of-Year Celebration, Dr. Timothy D. Johnston, dean of the College, noted that the awards provide an opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and promise of the College’s untenured faculty.
