The Isabelle de Courtivron Writing Prize was established in 2010 in honor of Isabelle de Courtivron, professor emerita of French studies, on the occasion of her retirement. The prize is awarded annually for student writing on topics related to immigrant, diaspora, bicultural, bilingual, and/or mixed-race experiences. This year, the prize committee is chaired by assistant professor of African studies M. Amah Edoh. Edoh answered a few questions about the origins and aims of the prize, and about its namesake. Entries are now open for the 2019 Isabelle de Courtivron Writing Prize.
