She has been selected as an Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) Fellow for 2016-2017. The theme for the year is “Publics” and we will participate in year-long activities and Fellow Seminars. As a research fellow, which carries a stipend and tuition waiver, her primary focus will be her dissertation project. Ms. Mixon thanks the BMRC and its generous financial support, for firming up her dissertation project!

Additionally, she is also the recipient of the Lynn M. Martin Award for Distinguished Women Teachers. Named for the founder, the Lynn M.
