Honors Faculty Fellow Darren Middleton was named one of three winners of the TCU-wide Deans’ Research and Creativity Award at Fall Commencement Dec. 19.
Dr. Middleton, a professor of religion, is serving a three-year term as a Faculty Fellow in the John V. Roach Honors College and was nominated for the Deans’ Award by the AddRan College of Liberal Arts, which houses the religion department.
According to the award guidelines, the award is not for the volume of research or creative activity but for research or creativity of the highest quality.
Dr. Middleton’s recent publications include the books “Approaching Silence: New Perspectives on Shusaku Endo’s Classic Novel” (co-edited with TCU religion professor Mark Dennis) and “Rastafari and the Arts: An Introduction.”
In the spring semester, Dr. Middleton will be drawing on his research in teaching Cultural Contact Zones – Rastafari and Reggae in Global Context.
