APC research fellow, Professor Lesley Cowling, received an award from the International Association for Literary Journalism Studies (IALJS) earlier this year, for the best article in the association’s journal in 2016. The article, “Echoes of an African Drum: the Lost Literary Journalism of 1950s South Africa” - an article on the Drum journalists of the 1950s - was published in the 2016 spring edition of the Literary Journalism Studies. The prize was presented at the Conference of IALJS in Halifax in May 2017, where the chair said that “the exceptional quality of scholarship” in the article had advanced the art of literary journalism studies.
