The Timothy Dow Adams Award
Presented by the editors of a/b: Auto/Biography Studies.
This award is made in honor of Timothy Dow Adams, one of the founding editors of a/b: Auto/Biography Studies and a longtime friend and supporter of the journal. His outstanding scholarship—including the two books, Telling Lies in Modern American Autobiography and Life Writing, Light Writing: Photography in Autobiography—have had a lasting impact on the field. As the life narrative community mourned his untimely loss, we gathered together to create an annual award presented in his honor. This prize is intended to support emerging and underrepresented scholars’ attendance at an International Auto/Biography Association Conference.
