London Faculty Member Wins Prestigious Literary Award
December 4, 2014
Dr. Laurence Scott, a longstanding member of Arcadia University’s core faculty in London, has received the prestigious Royal Society of Literature Jerwood Award for 2014. Scott was awarded first prize for his forthcoming non-fiction book, The Four Dimensional Human.
The Jerwood Foundation issued a press release in which the highly experienced judges stated:
Laurence Scott's meditation on the way digital media have changed not only our lives but our consciousness is full of fresh ideas and written with great panache. Drawing on a wide range of references—from Henry James to Eminem, from 19th-century futurist fiction to the fable of Beauty and the Beast—Scott illuminates our bewildering new world.
