Julia Douthwaite, professor of French and Francophone studies in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters, has been selected to receive the 2013 Sheedy Excellence in Teaching Award.
“Douthwaite is one of the most influential and effective scholar-teachers to have graced our department since it was established,” says Theodore Cachey, Albert J. and Helen M. Ravarino Family Director of Dante and Italian Studies and immediate past chair of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
The highest teaching honor in the Arts and Letters, the Sheedy award was founded in 1970 in honor of Rev. Charles E. Sheedy, C.S.C., who served as dean of the College from 1951–69.
