Dr. Ibram Rogers Awarded Siegfried Prize
Dr. Ibram H. Rogers, assistant professor of history and Africana and Latino studies at SUNY Oneonta, has been awarded the 2011 Richard Siegfried Junior Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence. Rogers will deliver the 17th annual Richard Siegfried Lecture, titled “Unknown Forerunners: Black Students and the Long Civil Rights Movement, 1935-1956,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, in the Craven Lounge of the Morris Conference Center.
Admission to the event is free, and community members are invited to attend the presentation and the dessert reception that precedes it at 7 p.m.
A dissertation fellow at SUNY Oneonta during the 2008-2009 academic year, Rogers joined the college’s Africana and Latino Studies and History departments in a tenure-track position in fall 2009. He holds a Ph.D. from Temple University.
The Siegfried Prize, which is awarded annually, recognizes a non-tenured faculty member for outstanding academic achievement outside the classroom. The prize was made possible by gifts from alumni to the college and by a special gift from Alice Siegfried in memory of her husband, theater Professor Richard K. Siegfried, who taught at the college from 1958 to 1995.
