Gary Hoppenstand will receive the Lynn Bartholome Eminent Scholar Award from the national Popular Culture Association at the PCA’s annual meeting this April. This award recognizes significant contributions by a scholar working in a field under the umbrella of Popular or American culture. The award, started in 2015, formalizes our tradition of honoring scholarly work at the PCA. Those honored are selected by a committee chosen by the President of the PCA and approved by the PCA Governing Board. The award honors Lynn Bartholome, longest serving president of both the PCA and combined PCA/ACA. She has also served the organization as an area chair, board member, and board treasurer. Currently she serves as the first full-time Executive Director of the Association. Past recipients include Jane Caputi, David Feldman, Thomas Inge, Susan Koppelman, and Emily Toth.
