Rhona Richman Kenneally awarded Outstanding Teacher

Longtime IASIL member, Rhona Richman Kenneally has been named the recipient of the 2015 Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching at Concordia University in Montreal, an award granted to only one faculty member annually by the Concordia University Alumni Association, in recognition of  “superior knowledge, teaching ability and accessibility to students.”

Rhona is a co-founder of the Centre, and later School, of Canadian Irish Studies. She is currently a Fellow of the School, and teaches in its programs. She is a Professor and past Chair of Concordia’s Department of Design and Computation Arts, and is editor of the Canadian Journal of Irish Studies. Rhona’s current research and recent publications explore mid-20th-century Irish domestic space, and the changes brought on by new technologies and other innovations associated with modernity. Rhona’s teaching was also recognized last year, when she received a Distinguished Teaching Award from the Faculty of Fine Arts.
