Faculty Excellence Chris McCauley April 16, 2024

Twenty faculty members across multiple departments in the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s College of Arts and Sciences wrote or edited 23 books last year. The scholarship was wide-ranging, include research on the anthropology of drugs, epigenetics, multimodal composition, and more.

The College continued to uphold its long-standing tradition of celebrating all faculty authors—from the previous year—at an event at the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts. This year’s celebration took place on April 15, 2024, with approximately 50 faculty and staff members in attendance.

Congratulations to the following faculty members for writing or editing a book in 2023.
